Technically, that not mandriva, but mageia :)

And since one of the goal of the tool is to manage people who ask for
backports, as said on http://mageia-app-db.tuxette.fr/projects/1/wiki ,
it make sense to limit this to supported releases. 

>From a ressource point of view, I do not think it would be wise to keep
everything ( ie, to still keep stuff server side to change all
releases ). And limiting the releases supported on every tools we use
would also remove clutter on various part of the interface ( ie bugzilla
among others, or forums ).

So yes, just show only X releases by default make perfect sense, IMHO
