As an engineer in a billion dollar enterprise that relies on ZF for at least two properties, I would have to say in general, "no"
we run RH5 for all properties. Any new ventures /products/services on RH6.
Under both, we use PHP 5.3.8
For RH6 deployments, we are currently in the process if upgrading and migrating to PHP 5.4.x. We expect to finish this migration in Sept 2014.
For the majority of our projects, on RH5, we are hoping to have all those data centers and code base migrated to RH6/PHP5.4 by mid 2015.
We only just completed our upgrade to PHP5.3.x on these systems in Q2 of this year. (and upgrading from 5.2 to 5.3 was painful, and still incomplete has we have plenty of deprecated function warnings that we had to @ silence...)
We do accept that we can't get the latest and greatest, and need to backport things ourselves often,but it is nice to be able to get it "for free"
But if a bump is required to a new version, it would be muchly appreciated for there to be an intermediate version that does nothing but add a configurable option that triggers a E USER DEPRECATED for modules/functions that are going to break (to test on whether we use offending features or not)
This could even be an out of band tagged download (zf-2.2.5-compatTest) just for upgrade testing.
I know going from ZF 2 2.3 to 2.2.5 fatal errored alloir projects as we didn't have zend/form, (an interface was required for module manager I believe) in our composer.json file. So, its definitely not uncommon to be fixing things after a pint upgrade. Testing is a must, and excessive documentation is appreciated. Especially if upgrading a point version only backcompat breaks a small number of methods/classes. (thus we could otherwise upgrade without worry)

Subject: Re: [zf-contributors] Query: Should ZF2 bump the minimum required PHPversion?
My vote is for the PHP version the majority of stable / LTS OS's support by default.

i'm +1 for myself to bump the PHP version (as i'm using only 5.4/5.5), but -1 for general users.
In general for ZF3 and all later versions:
Wouldn't it be possible to directly combine the PHP release process with the ZF minimum required version?
The PHP release process is defined clearly since PHP 5.3: https://wiki.php.net/rfc/releaseprocess#example_time_line_with_two_majors_versions
So when ZF3 releases in September 2014 or 6 months later, PHP 5.4 is already EOL!
(if it would be 6 months later already 5.5 would be EOL).
I like the process, how google define the Internet Explorer support timelime:
This post has NOT been accepted by the mailing list yet.
But that's not right though, according to that example 5.3 is already EOL, and was in fact EOL last year, which is insane since the last 5.3 release was only 11 Jul 2013
