This would be no problem if I didn't have to run commercial software
(including a cross compiling toolchain) that was dinamically linked to
glibc 2.3.

I could try upgrading, but if I lock myself (i.e. become unable to run
the commercial software), I don't know how to revert to glibc 2.3.

So, does all the software linked to 2.3 also works with 2.5?

Use debootstrap to make a chroot, and run your commercial software in
the chroot.
