Ultimately this is a product decision, with input from various teams as to
what the cost of ongoing support is.
We still have a significant number of XP users, as well as new downloads
from XP users. IIRC both are in the 15% ballpark. We recently committed to
some infrastructure work to continue supporting even XPSP2 after SHA1 is
deprecated, so I think it's unlikely that we'd be dropping complete XP
support anytime soon.
