Mine does :-). For one thing, old bridgeboards only have 5.25" floppies.
Also there are various wierd non-PC machines out there (AT&T 3B1, for
example) that can read DOS 5.25" floppies, and it's useful for
interchange with them.

Kids, kids, it's a floorwax *and* a desert topping! :-) You can have
both (and HD support is in there, but it's broken). Adding 5.25" support
is just a matter of cloning the 3.5" DD line in the ID table and
changing a few parameters.
