Well, It's easy to criticize, but much harder to create new ideas... So I
specialize in former. :-)

I have only two suggestions:
1) Leave the wording as is, and make Lanai an official back-end no earlier
than Sep 28th.
2) Downgrade the wording from "must have" to "suggested" and add something
like "can be transformed to official status earlier if there is enough
support from LLVM maintainers". We can even formalize what "enough support"
means -- say, at least three maintainers employed by other companies LGTMed
