Two years is less than the upgrade cycle for browsers, so that's probably 
ok. It's certainly much less than the upgrade cycle for servers, which is 
measured in half-decades at this point. (Also, I doubt today's products 
with cycles greater than two years would see much use as regular browsing
devices, so I'm not sure that that's a concern at this point. I agree that 
in a few years it might become relevant, though.)
