... stable platform for development on bleeding-edge versions of tools e.g. gcc, GTK+, and GNOME
Which by definition are often not that stable. That nitpick aside, new versions of Fedora get released a little too frequently for something that is officially "not beta for RHEL". Perhaps the releases should be based on considerable advances in functionality. As a corollary, the relatively small changes between FC5 and FC6-candidates might be better served as updates to FC5.
Have you looked at Fedora development lately? The freeze for Fedora 6 test 2 slipped recently because of large changes. An almost full rebuild is afoot right now, because of gcc and binutils changes.
The whole idea of Fedora is bleeding edge, that is a bit hard to be if you don't have a short development cycle. But then again, Fedora is not everybody's ideal, and luckily there are plenty of distributions from which to choose.
