What about support, i.e. security updates? When I have a look at

The only php SCL on that page that isn't EOL yet is php 7.3
Supported multi php installations seems difficult with that (maybe
there is more behind your www.softwarecollections.org link?), although
it would be possible to have the original non SCL php 5.4 in addition
to the SCL php 7.3.
