I have no special knowledge, but I'd bet in the fall IBM announces end
of support of V5R4 for fall 2012.
I get the feeling IBM is weighing the decision based on the number of
users who could not move to V6R1, which seemed to usually be due to
vendor software issues.
I think the best thing they could do is to announce end of support and
get the last stragglers moving.
