well, Brian - you seem to be looking in the wrong place, also you are 
mistaken about requirements for sqlite data. So, here is where it stands:

5.3 has not been moved to vault.c.o as yet, due to disk space issues, we 
should have that resolved in the next few weeks. Once its moved, it will 
exist there for as long as we are able to keep it ( we still have all of 
2.1 / 3.* / 4.* and 5.* so far )

all metadata for 5.3 is still available in the right place. eg:
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.3/updates/i386/repodata/
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.3/os/i386/repodata/

Every release ever done by CentOS stays public, and we make every effort 
to keep atleast the binary and source files available ( so this 
best-effort-warranty does not extend to debuginfo pkgs ).
