I'd support making Xapian 1.4 a minimum requirement in the next notmuch
release, particularly if someone does the work to provide a mostly-minus
patchset that cleans up the legacy conditionals.

fwiw, xapian 1.4 was part of debian oldstable (stretch), which was
released in mid-2017.  I don't think it's a problem to require a
dependency of that vintage.
