I think the date for which "only 10 methods" is allowed has de facto
become a root program issue rather than a BR issue; for Mozilla, it's
21st July.

It's not about continuing to allow deprecated methods, it's about
continuing to allow data gathered using deprecated methods. The current
proposal, to which Ryan is objecting, is to allow all existing data to
continue to be used for the standard data lifetime of 825 days.
