Considering that people have been developing on stable on the basis that it is in fact 5.0.x, I think we should at least make sure that those changes end up somewhere in case we do a 5.0.3 release for whatever reason. Rather than lose those changes because we merged, could a read only branch be created from the current stable and then merge that into release should a 5.0.3 release happen? So no more work would be done for 5.0.x unless it is decided to make a 5.0.3 release.
