JWPlatt certainly believes that means that the events of Myst 5 took place in 2005. I, on the other hand, am more inclined to believe that that statement means that because the game Myst 5 was published by Cyan, they are less likely to have the same storyline in the new Uru, for whatever reason.
I thought about posting a gleeful response to Nyrphame, but decided not to for fear of being accused of beating a dead horse. But I guess it's not so dead yet. Thanks for the objective summary. Tell you what - I'll wager you an Uru Live T-Shirt that I will be proven correct that the events of Myst V occurred in 2005. I would also wager separately that the Bahro were freed. With the DRC's timeline, RAWA's TCT podcast statement, and Rand's THM statement, I'm very confident. How about you?
Here's the bonus to this discussion: In addition to Maratanos, I will offer the same wager to Whilyam (although it's possible Whilyam might now agree with 2005). We finally met in the Cavern, he was quite friendly and willing to chat, and has been a strong dissenting voice opposing my thoughts here. So I figure it would be sporting to include him. Whilyam?
For the separate Bahro wager, I'll put up a month of Uru Live.
