The sensible policy is that one continues to make security and bug fixes 
in the stable branch, even if one does not add new features to that. 
Apache is still supporting 1.3, for instance; and many large sites like 
IBiblio prefer it. If that's not planned for WordPress by the current 
maintainers, then perhaps it might be time for those who, like myself, 
prefer 1.5, to consider a 1.5 fork version.
