We wish to upgrade our CCM from version 8.0.1 to 8.6.2 which is integrated with meeting place version 18.104.22.168. We have searched for the compatibility on cisco.com and found following two references. We also checked with PDI and they have recommended to use ccm 8.5 or upgrade meeting place to 8.5.
Note - We have meeting place for audio conference meetings only at the moment. Due to other application requirement we have to upgrade to cucm to 8.6.x.

6.1(2) - 8.0
Nov. 12, 2007 - Mar. 26, 2010
Also, in the compatibility tool , It states that
The fact that CUCM 8.6.2 is not specified in the MP8.0 documentation means that MP8.0 hasn’t been officially tested with that version of CUCM, and hence cannot be stated it is officially supported. Since MP8.0 is end of sale, there won’t be any additional testing of this product, and hence CUCM 8.6.x won’t be added to the documentation at any time.
It may work but it is not officially supported by the BU.

Thanks for your reply. I got your message, But I wanted to check with other folks who has this scenario and their experience/observation.
Please avoid deploying a setup which is not supported according to documents. It might run for several years without any issue or it might not run even for a single day. If it is not tested it is not supported.
Consider a scenario when this deployment works fine for couple of months into production and then you face some issue. TAC & BU will not be able to help you.
