Thanks for this!

No opinion here. I think 5.4.0 should not be postponed (there could be
5.4.1 if needed).

This is not a good idea. In fact the files from 5.3-CVS-Head should
be copied as 5.7-CVS depends on them. As you have written above, 5.4.0
does not contain all recent changes (some of them were done for 5.7-CVS).
This would mean extra work to merge in the missing changes.
