Well, being a release manager is a great responsibility, moreover it
requires a lot of time to do that, it's not easy to step in if you want
to be serious.

Yeah, I do not mind people that stick with a release, the people that we
should care more are people that constantly keep the system on par with
the latest stable release, there's still people running 2.0.x
installation everywhere and they do not want to make any change (even
when we get out security updates). So I do not think these people will
be hurt by 3.0.x fading out, when they will decide to switch we will be
at some very far release from the one they have and they will have to
make their test systems anyway either it be 3.2.x or 4.x or 5 ...
