Are there any downsides to using unsupported kernels?

I saw an option in Manjaro notifier settings about notifying me of unsupported kernels, what are these unsupported kernels exactly? Are there any downsides or risks of using such kernels?

Kernels that are EOL, and that will soon be dropped. They are no longer being updated with security patches and bug fixes.

That goes without saying. They’ll contain security flaws and bugs.

Additionally, any bug reports regarding that version is automatically ignored.
