Per the official support page, stable/11 will be supported through
September 30, 2021.  So even if sparc64 src is deleted from 12, it
will still be usable on 11 through that time:

I suppose we could try to convince the src people to leave it in the
tree for 12, but merely disconnected; however, I think once it's
disconnected it will just bitrot.  That was certainly the fate of
the alpha arch.  (Given that FreeBSD src was under a much more rapid
rate of change in that timeframe.)
