Thanks for all the infos.

I doubt that it can or can not be assumed. It would need to run tests to properly say wether or not it is functioning properly with 5.3.

I think first of all we need a valid and binding statement wether or not WordPress core should be compatible with PHP 5.3 or not. The project maintainers need to make that statement.

I like the Idea to have that statement in bold because PHP 5.3 release is some days older now. It was in the beginning of the month if I remember correctly.
