I'm not trying to be dramatic or anything, but having the system be
compromised because a critical security vulnerability does not get
fixed (because, as Micah points out, Karmic is no longer supported
(and hence does not get security updates any longer)) sounds like a
much worse nightmare to me.

If by "services" you mean something that's exposed to a network, those
are reasons *for* upgrading (since they're easier to attack if there's
a security problem), not *against* upgrading.
