Not entirely true.  Sun offers extended support contracts for
those that *must* run Solaris 8, and Solaris 10 containers
is available for platform (i.e. hardware) support on newer
equipment for Solaris 8/9.

A more interesting question may be whether people are still
running Solaris 8 openAFS file/db servers.  A client only
release might be possible for such an old platform.
