I've heard several times from various official and unofficial sources that the time limit is 5 years for ropes.

That is silly and just plain incorrect. Quoted from Beal:

Lifetime = Time in storage before first use + time in use.

- The lifetime is limited to 15 years.
- The lifetime depends on the frequency and mode of use.
- Mechanical demands, abrasion, UV and humidity slowly degrade the properties of the rope.

Duration of storage :
In good storage conditions BEAL PPE may be left for up to 5 years before first use without affecting the duration of its future time in use.

Time in use :
The potential lifetime of BEAL PPE in use is up to a maximum of 10 years.

Attention : This is a potential time in use. An item of PPE may be destroyed during its first use. It is the inspection and control which determines if this product must be scrapped sooner. Between uses, appropriate storage is essential.
