Legacy driver support

Is it possible to learn what is the support timeline for the legacy graphics driver? Because up until the beginning of this year, Core i3 and lower only had Gene GPUs, meaning that CPUs Intel was selling as new half a year ago are already legacy. Can one hope that the legacy driver will be supported for years?

Another issue is that Tremont, which is still being sold new, and has a Gen11 GPU, is only supported in legacy, even though other Gen11 GPUs (in Rocket Lake and Tiger Lake) are still mainline. Does this suggest that Gen11 will be moving to legacy soon?

Looks like critical fixes only will be addressed.
