Thanks for reaching out!
We did consider this as well, and we understand that different projects
have different lifecycles. That being said, in the interest of providing
the best possible experience for 4.0, we're aligning our community releases
with our development platform.
If someone is available to offer resources to continue supporting CentOS6,
I think we'd be willing to consider that.
