Given that

   a) We don't enforce users to upgrade.
   b) The decision to move to Java 7 doesn't prevent us from opening
        a maintenance branch for 3.5.
   c) If we decide for an incompatible change, there is an opportunity
       for other such changes. As a consequence, the next release will
       most likely take some time, and Dec 2018 might easily be in the
       past, when we do that release.

I don't see, why we should bother to care for that fact.
