So I haven't looked at this in a while but the usual way it's happened on linux drivers for nvidia cards is that they stop updates for X11, the linux kernel, and other parts of the system, even if they maintain the driver itself keeping it otherwise up to date feature and bug wise. This means that you'll be stuck at older kernel versions and older linux distro versions without a way to move forward on the proprietary driver.
