I don't understand why you think it would drop 10.4 compatibility?
Please explain if I'm wrong but wouldn't It simply be an option?
Active Target is 10.4 or 10.6? You build what you want. 
My wife still uses my old G4 867Mhz and Tiger (10.4).
So I think having a Tiger version is fine. 
Perhaps newer capabilites would not be able to be implemented for Tiger.
But moving forward need not be constrained to Tiger. We can have both.

Yes I followed that at the time and understand your concerns. See above.

Apple has pretty well moved from GCC to LLVM as the standard compiler.

See my musings in the other email answer to Tor.
