If you leave them all, little can go wrong. In the worst case the
might start failing at some point in the future, you can still remove
them then.

These two should not see any further updates, but see above.

Keep for the time being. In earlier releases there have been updates
past the official end of support, I'm not informed whether there are
still items in the queue for squeeze.

I bet you want to keep that :)

No, although I consider it worth an idea to clean out security.do and
move everything to the regular archive by a final point release. But
I'm not in the position to decide that.

As you like it. Since some packages are no longer supported in
squeeze-lts and their number will grow, using a backport instead might
be a solution if you need that particular functionality.
