I think the main point to consider here is:
Will such issues hold back a release (i.e. Postgres support is still a 
critical issue - "deferred, but not dropped") or will it be released with 
Postgres left in an unfunctionable state (or, for that matter, 
Opera/Safari/Konqueror for JavaScript stuff)?

The latter would be where "dropping support" starts.
Personally, I see no problem with the former.
