Why, and what is the actual impact to the user base?

Something to keep in mind when it comes to Asterisk when thinking about
this stuff is that it's not a small project. There's a large user base, so
everything like this (not supporting CentOS 7, adding -std=c11 to CFLAGS)
has to be completely understood with its impact before consideration. We
can't just deprecate things without ample notice, change build requirements
on a whim, etc. That's not how we roll as a project.
