 The requirements page lists minimum and recommended versions but does not
 list information about what wordpress finds "acceptable", which is
 something that triggers a warning notice to users.

 Ideally the page would say something like:

 Note: If you are in a legacy environment where you only have older PHP or
 MySQL versions, WordPress also works with PHP 5.6.20+ and MySQL 5.0+, but
 these versions have reached official End Of Life and as such may expose
 your site to security vulnerabilities and a notice may appear in the
 dashboard to indicate this. To ensure you are never at risk of this, try
 to stay at least on a version of your software that still receives
 security upgrades (link to https://www.php.net/supported-versions.php).

 And the corresponding notice would contain a link to that page.
