Description

For PHP upgrades, nudging users to update their PHP version proved to be successful.

Maintainability cost of IE11 (In terms of time, bundle size and a lot more) is very high and IE11 is approaching the 1% threshold in its usage worldwide https://caniuse.com/usage-table

I think we should consider adding a notice to discourage its usage.

This sounds like it should be a meta ticket to add a message to Browse Happy that shows up to IE11 users. See wp_dashboard_browser_nag().
