Why does Strapi still use old database versions

When installing strapi 4 I noticed that strapi has listed some very old database versions as the recommended versions, is this correct ?

Installing from CLI - Strapi Developer Docs

But I still got strapi to work on MySQL 8 albeit having to switch to the the legacy authentication method (native password instead of the new caching_sha2_password), I understand it has to with the node library for mysql, but does strapi have plans to switch to mysql2 library to make this work ?

node.js - MySQL 8.0 - Client does not support authentication protocol requested by server; consider upgrading MySQL client - Stack Overflow
