The whole thread is based on this wrong assumption. Quoting from the
update policy [1]:

"If upstream does not provide security fixes for a particular release,
and if backporting the fix would be impractical, then a package may be
rebased onto a version that upstream supports. The definition of
practicality is left to the judgment of FESCO and the packager. "

And from the discussion that seems to be the case here so I'd opt for

4) Leave 5.x in and once it becomes EOL and a security issues comes up
update to 6.x mid release. It would have had been tested in rawhide
(and possible COPR) in the meantime which would minimize the impact.
