technically speaking, you should replace 1/3 of them every year, so none are older than 3 years.

That is Best Practices, for production systems.  You can, of course, extend your risk in any method you find acceptable.  Some companies will wait two years, then replace 1/3 yearly, etc.  Some will wait till they fail the battery tests and replace them.  All based on amount of acceptable risk.
