Sprint just negated my main remaining reason for rooting. I don't ROM phones anymore because the dev support for my Moto G5S Plus and my son's Moto G6 just isn't there (at least not for the USA versions of these phones). So, the only reason I rooted my Moto G5S Plus was for unlimited wifi hotspot, and just as I was toying with the idea of rooting my son's Moto G6 (he's the one who mainly uses the hotspot feature on my phone), Sprint sent me an email out of the blue informing me that due to being a long-time Sprint customer, that I could indefinitely upgrade all 5 phones on my account with a free 50GB/month hotspot. Sure enough, when I checked my Sprint account there was the option for 2GB/month hotspot for $20, 6GB/month hotspot for $50, or 50GB/month hotspot for $0.00. I still have one remaining reason to root my phone, and that's to be able to edit the build.prop to activate the Camera 2 API so that Google Camera (specifically their superior HDR+) will work. The stock Moto Camera 2 app on the Moto phones is notoriously bad due to overprocessing the final image, so I'm currently running the older 32-bit version of the Google Camera that my Nexus 6 (which also had a 32-bit ROM) was also running. But honestly, I could squeak by with using the Moto Camera app if I had to. I discovered that if I always shoot using the "Low Light" feature that it doesn't overprocess the images. I'm just as disappointed as you with the duration of Android device support these days. Even though my wife and youngest son have switched to Apple, I just can't bring myself to do that quite yet, but I have to admit that Apple's OS support is highly tempting me. The iPhone XR is REALLY tempting me. But I'll probably just stick with the relatively inexpensive Moto phones as long as I can. I really like their feature set, but I do wish they had more 3rd-party dev support, but I think the glory days of ROM flashing are just pretty much gone for just about all Android phones -- even the Pixels. I really enjoyed it while it lasted and will definitely miss it.
