Of course, that fifth partition need not be in the partition table.
For example, the first one isn't.
Hm, yeah, I've completely forgot about this restriction.

So, there is no easy way to just add another one partition. It's easier to simply move some space from mmcblk0p4 to mmcblk0p3. You're right.

But it''s possible to:
  • either convert mmcblk0p4 into extended partition, then make logical mmcblk0p5 and mmcblk0p6, then change userstore partition number in /etc/default/layout to p5,
  • or make use of fact that mmcblk0p4 contains another partition table with the sole userstore partition.
