When will the el#_u#_xxx_patch channels for OL4.x/5.x be Terminated?

Users register their servers into el#_u#_xxx_patch channels (e.g, el4_u5_i386_patch, or el5_u1_i386_patch) so that these servers are still in a specific Update# (e.g, OL4u5, or OL5U1) even next Update# (e.g, OL4U6 or OL5U2) has been released.

Some customer may want to know when Oracle stops to provide the patches for specific Update# (e.g, OL4U5 or OL5U1).
