What is the latest news on this? I noticed PHP was patched for db-6 and later on db support was removed completely. Will the db/db5 package be dropped entirely?

As far as I understand, the main concern is linking GPLv2 against AGPLv3. Thus I'd propose to create db5.3 for the GPLv2 only projects:
bogofilter iproute2 jnettop reprepro
I seems to me it's not enough. Probably all dependent packages must be compatible with the AGPLv3 license, not just those packages which specify BerkeleyDB as a dependency explicitly.
Good point. That adds a few to the list: bogofilter iproute2 jnettop reprepro
inn (links against pam) jack2 (depends on dbus) neomutt (didn't check, depend on libdb can be removed probably) subversion (depends on lz4) swi-prolog (depends on gperftools -> libunwind)
These are fine: isync (depends are BSD, GPLv3 and zlib) libical (depends on LGPLv2, MIT, BSD, zlib, GPLv3) opendkim (depends on BSD, OpenLDAP Public, cyrus-sasl, LGPLv2) postfix (depends on openssl, cyrus-sasl, zlib) skktools (depends on GPLv3 and LGPLv2, MIT, BSD)
evolution-data-server and squid have been moved away from bdb in the meantime.
