Preliminary research suggested that I would see some improvement by upgrading. Based on those benchmarks, Drupal with APC should see about 3% improvement (far less than Drupal without APC). After migrating to a completely new AMI with an update to Linux, PHP, Apache, Varnish, etc., I saw nearly 30% improvement with Drupal and APC. Too many systems updated for me to tell which provided the performance boost without major research time.

In addition to the improved speed, I'm looking forward to incorporating closures into future modules. There are some neat libraries out there that require 5.3. I'll report back once I find one that justifies inclusion in my workflow. Until then...
