I wouldn't count on it. CentOS 4 (now at 4.6) is in maintenance only mode, and 
unless someone adds it to plus, I doubt it will make it in.
 From the CentOS wiki;


How long will CentOS-4 updates be supported?
We intend to support CentOS-4 updates until Feb 29, 2012.

The current plan is this:

Full Updates (including hardware updates): Currently to Feb 29, 2008

Maintenance Updates: Mar 1, 2008 to Feb 29, 2012

Full Updates - During the Full Updates phase, new hardware support will be 
provided at the discretion of CentOS via Update Sets. Additionally, all 
available and qualified errata will be provided via Update Sets (or 
individually {and immediately} for Security level errata.) Update Sets 
normally will be released 2-4 times per year, with new ISOs released as part 
of each Update Set. In the 4.x numbering scheme, the .x is the number of the 
Update Set.

Maintenance Updates - During the Maintenance updates phase, only Security 
errata and select mission critical bug fixes will be released. There will be 
few, if any, Update Sets released.

You hope everybody uses it, and
you notice quickly if they don't!!!!
