I was ignored when a similar question arose for Solaris 8 but here goes 

Take a snapshot of the last working set of Solaris 9 packages and 
archive them. Do not piecemeal update as this breaks the set [as 
happened to the last the Solaris 8 set which became unusable].

Thus only old system packages are provided to maintain old 
installations. Anyone using an old operating system will be more 
satisfied with an old working set than a newer broken one.
