From the DB 5 documentation for <footnote>
   indexterm must not occur in the descendants of footnote
So this is exactly the opposite of what you're describing above for DB4:
according to the DB5 documentation, <indexterm>s are allowed as immediate
children of <footnote>, but *not* as children of descendents of <footnote>.
Hence the RFE.
