Just declare it done, and see if any one screams?  I know the financial 
firm I worked for 25 years, retired HPUX only as Intel/AMD 
virtualization started to dominate the virtual scape, so they had HPUX 
still running as late as 2013.  Also, if there are unaddressed, 
significant, CVEs, that pretty much kills an OS now days.
