Yup, and many people reported success going from 5.2 to 6.0, 6.1, 6.2
and all the way up to 7.3.  I don't recall seeing reports of people
going beyond that - doesn't mean they're not there but that I haven't
seen any reports.

I've also heard of disaster stories from different people going through
the same upgrade process.

Whether it's supported or not, if it breaks, you're the one that has to
live with it.  Red Hat may acknowledge a bug if the upgrade totally
hoses your system, or they may say "too bad".  In any case, you're stuck
with the mess.

What you do is up to you.  I'm making my own choices.
