It seems like it would be more consistent to further extend the name of
the IUS package. Typically, IUS seems to do this by adding a suffix more
specifically indicating the version. Perhaps a php53u package (or
similar) would be in order, with the "u" (or other character) indicating
that the package intends to march forward with upstream stable releases,
in contrast to RHEL sticking with a specific release and back-porting
