Comment (by jb510):

 It's really not just about namespaces (or magic constants like __DIR__ or
 anonymous functions or DateTime::diff or ots of things), it's about user

 In the last 6 months I've had as many sites white screened on update by
 plugins from .org using 5.3+ functions.  Heck, QueryMonitor was one of
 those plugins!

 All I can add to this at this point is say that I really wish a year ago a
 PHP Required version check for plugins had been added core.  Seems like a
 _very_ good idea.
