 I'm not entirely sure I follow, @leonaves1 is the suggestion here that we
 should warn that using what's called out as a "legacy" system should also
 warn you that running such a system will also show a dashboard warning?

 If so, I think this is a `wontfix` from me.

 I believe the core notice also links to the [https://wordpress.org/support
 /update-php/ Support Article about updating PHP].

 For reference, the current wording:
 > 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.
