That isn't quite right for 5.2, in the sense that IBM still
supports AIX 5.2 and 5.3 workload partitions under AIX 7.
These are VMs designed to run old application environments
that can't be upgraded.  See e.g.
These workload-partition systems became available only starting in 2010,
and will be supported for some time: currently there is no
end-of-support date for them.

We might need to clarify Gnulib's target-platform policy to deal with this
sort of thing, as it may become more popular in the future.
