It doesn't only count what distributions *currently* ship. What counts
is that in those years GNOME might want to switch to gtk4 (no idea
whether that is the case or not) and that is a matter for those

By your reasoning one wouldn't fix build breakages with newer libs or
newer gcc or whatever because distros don't *yet* ship it

There's not only stuff in deb format/rpms on tdf.org, there's also
packages in distributions proper.

And if a future GNOME used gtk4 we should have a -gtk4 backend.
