I'm a long-term RHEL user, and I completely agree that there is no need
for Emacs 27 to worry about supporting RHEL5 (at all, never mind for GTK).
(IIRC, RHEL5 shipped with Emacs 21.)

(Since RHEL7 was released 5 years ago, I also have no problem with
dropping RHEL6 support in Emacs 27 if it makes maintenance significantly
