It is supported to the extent that existing content there will
continue to remain available, but its continued use for new
content is now discouraged.

No, there is no risk of use ever losing that the existing content.
For one thing, the URLs for content there have been published and
we will need to forever make the existing content available there
(probably in many cases with notes saying that it's been obsoleted
and pointing to content at the MediaWiki instance) or set up
automatic redirects for it to the MediaWiki instance.

Yes, I will get one set up.
