My (late) vote is to rename 5.2 -> 6.0 and have the 5.3 release be based 
on the current ORM 5.1 branch.  5.3 would include changes that are 
compatible with ORM 5.0.x applications (so that 5.0 users can migrate to 
5.3, without having to rewrite code).  5.2 users would then migrate to 
6.0, which would continue to have the same changes (plus whatever else 
is included).  I'm thinking that this would open up a path for new ORM 
features to be made available to ORM 5.0.x applications, via the 5.3+
