While we will evaluate any bugreport with regards to its severity, there might be issues with a lower severity which will only get fixed in 1.10.x (this especially applies to issues which would require API additions/changes and/or require a significant investment to get backported to the old stable version).

Just chiming in here. As a user, Stefan's suggested text makes sense, sounds reasonable from both a dev and a user point of view, and is far less scary sounding than "deprecated" or "doomed" -- yes I know the other text said it's NOT doomed, but nevertheless!!! :-)
