The Galaxy Nexus has already been end of lifed by Google. In fact that happened back in October of last year. Now it appears that Cyanogen Mod will not be updating the Galaxy Nexus to Android L. This means that CM was able to bring a whole Android version "Kit Kat" to the device that otherwise would have never made it to the phone. Just because CM wont officially support the Galaxy nexus doesn't mean that the Galaxy Nexus won't see Android L at all. There are plenty of developers who love to port the latest versions of Android to older devices. So no worries as long as you are able to unlock your bootloader and flash a custom recovery you will more than likely be able to use the latest version of Android. That is until your device explodes.
Cm has stated that the main reason builds won't continue on this device is because they don't have a full time maintainer. If a full time maintainer is found builds could actually continue. The odds of this outcome coming to fruition are pretty slim.
