Considering the number of times the question has been asked about when we
can upgrade to Java 8, having a general policy surrounding the support
cycle of Java itself makes a lot of sense. We could even use it with
breaking version number changes (e.g., 3.x is Java 8, 4.x is Java 11, 5.x
is Java 14, ...).
