Yes, maint supports Emacs 23.

But maint is for minor release, and I want a branch where we can work
on major releases (8.4, 8.5, etc.) that support Emacs 23 too.

The clean way would have been to use drop-emacs23 branch for working
on code that does not support Emacs 23, and continue to use master for
working on major releases, but since nobody wants to revert the code
on master, there is no harm in using "org-8-master" as the new master.

I hope my answer clarifies things.
