we just saw that sql 2005 version on this server is still RTM..

we are upgrading to SP4 right away..

I am sure we missing new benefits/syntax etc.. but were there dangers or problems we encountered even without realizing?

what is the worst that could have happened all these years that this was on RTM.. and that we did not realize?

That is a fairly wide-reaching query....

Honestly, I would think if it has been running successully as long as it has, then you're likely taking very good care of, and properly using, a good build.  There are numerous functions that are not available to you yet, and I would encourage the migration to v2008 R2 for many reasons, but... if it's not broken, don't fix it.
