Not true.  The policy states the following:

The addition of the designation status of ACTIVE or INACTIVE into the
LPI database began on September 1, 2004. Certification designations
(LPIC-1, LPIC-2, etc.) earned before that date will be subject to
the recertification stipulations as outlined above.   Therefore all
certification designations earned before September 1, 2004
will no longer be considered 'lifetime' designations and instead will
only have
ACTIVE status from FIVE years from the date of certification
designation. However, certification designations earned prior to
September 1, 2003 will be considered ACTIVE certifications until
September 1, 2008.

I repeat the last line:

"However, certification designations earned prior to
September 1, 2003 will be considered ACTIVE certifications until
September 1, 2008"

This means any LPIC-2 holder who earned their designation before
September 1, 2003 have a full
20 months to recertify or pursue LPIC-3.  LPIC-3 will be released next
month.
