I don't see what resources you're talking about.

trying to make the code hypothetically work in Windows-98, whereas I'm
suggesting we don't do that and let other people come whining if they

I'm not sure how that would happen: if noone tries to run current Emacs
on Windows-98 any more, then we'll never discover that it doesn't run
there any more.
So in this context, what would be a scenario where it would die?
