A disadvantage is that we’ll need to spend the time to ensure our CI
setup keeps matching the policies, and gets updated as distribution

I like this a lot! At the end of the day, what matters for our builds is
what the distros ship, and this covers that. Plus, it's not that hard to
update the CI images to keep them current.
We could put together a release calendar to remind us when it's time to
update CI. I took a quick look and couldn't immediately find one. I'd be
happy to put one together.
