Default Will winsxs stop growing?

On my system, C:\Windows\winsxs occupies 8.5G, out of the 36G used on my
C:, which I try to keep as just OS-plus-software (i. e. not data).

I've seen various discussions of what winsxs is, which generally descend
fairly rapidly into whether it really is the size it seems to be, talk
about junction points, and so on, to the extent that my brain hurts; in
general, I get the impression that, for bears of little brain like me,
it's something I should leave well alone, and accept that it will grow
as time goes by.

When end of support happens in January, will it stop growing?

Look out for #1. Don't step in #2 either.
