OpenMage/magento-lts vs Magento 2.4.x for New Deployments?

Problem with Magento 2.4.x for us is the high maintenance that is needed for every update due to the fact that we use custom theme and custom third-party modules, so if one of the modules hasn’t yet to offer an update before next Magento release, we are stuck with an unpatched installation.

My question is: Is OpenMage still viable for the future? We’re going to upgrade to PHP 8 and even database server will be continually updated, so we don’t want to get stuck with PHP 7.3 and old MySQL.
