Why not adhere to Microsoft's support lifecycle for SQL Server, encouraging your customers to stay secure by running a version that's still supported and receiving security updates? In that case, the oldest version that should be allowed is SQL Server 2016 Service Pack 1, and even then only until extended support ends in July of this year. Why support a version of your own product that uses underlying technologies no longer supported by the vendor and with (possibly, depending on version) known security vulnerabilities?

I'm not a developer, I ask as a MSFT field engineer supporting other technologies what the challenges are for you to consider taking such a position with your customers. I'm fascinated when I run across conversations like this and wish to learn the thinking behind it in the hopes I can better support the developers I work with. Thanks!
