Here we want to find, discuss and organize strategies for
Drupal Long Term Support (Drupal LTS).
The final Drupal 7 is released and …
"Drupal 5 will no longer be supported or receive security updates, and you will need to update your Drupal 5 sites to Drupal 6 at that time." http://drupal.org/handbook/version-info

It was planned like that a long time ago We need modules that aren’t/weren’t ported yet The client agreed to that.
There is no way of moving to drupal 7 (yet).
According to the drupal requirements page http://drupal.org/requirements#php
Note that some contributed modules may not be compatible with PHP 5.3, …

Security advisories (and patches) for older versions of Drupal by OpenFlows
How do you plan to backport security fixes?
Will you just wait for the release of Drupal 6 and backport them?
Do you plan to offer a system and some method to promote people reporting vulnerabilities in Drupal 5 even if it is EOL?
