Windows 10 Mobile lifecyle for 1703 and beyond

Windows 10 Mobile 1703 is currently beeing deployed OTA. 

However, the support page related to the lifecyle of that feature update haven't been updated yet:



Will it be 6 months more than 1607 or same as 1607 (until 10/9/2018) ?


Since 1703 is only proposed to 13 devices, it looks like the slow end of Windows 10 Mobile until the end of the lifecyle. 
It is now a clear statement that no former Nokia x30 will get 1703? These have been upgraded from 8.1 to 10m, 1607 is the last OS for these?


Can Microsoft make a clear statement if further feature update are planned in the future (171x/180x?) for Windows 10 Mobile?


In the mobile world, Microsoft has been a pretty bad communicator in the last years. 
It would be much better (i.e. efficienter for every organization deployement plan but also for private customers) to decide yes/no/how long from the begining!
