imho this is impossible, for the reasons Martin noted.

can you provide an answer to Kevin's initial question, namely: what are the 
actual cases that triggered this concern? e.g. what currently relies on a 
recent kernel, X or alsa?

for the same sort of reasons we can not make a all-SC decision, it's very hard 
to have a productive discusson without examples to demonstrate the problem 
which can then be analyzed and understood.

since you mentioned custom patches, disable features and compilation failures, 
you must have at least a couple of them :)
