I think this is a bad idea. If we go into this process with this  
attitude, we won't honestly try to get providers to PHP 5 because  
there is no need to for them – they will know that software projects  
won't move to 5 when the majority of providers still run 4. When we  
really make Drupal (and all the other projects) PHP 5 only starting  
from this date, providers won't have a choice but to upgrade.
