More or less, yes.

The most important question is whether you think that there are people
somewhere in the world that are using the device drivers on machines
with recent kernels.

If you still get bug reports for the drivers, that would be a clear
indication to make them stay, while if you haven't heard from a user
during the last five years, it's probably obsolete enough that it
can be removed (after a few kernels of grace period in drivers/staging).
