This is total nonsense, let me point to the example of the apache webserver.
Version 2.0 of apache was releases several years ago, and version 2.2 was 
released this year, but version 1.3 is still the most used.
I admit that the situation is not comparable with php, as version 5 brought 
some new features, but for many people stability is more important than 
features, so is would be a very bad thing to make TYPO3 depend on php5 in my 
opinion, and it would certainly be a limiting factor for the growth of TYPO3.
