I'll second that. I can see no way that FC6 could have been an upgrade for FC5, if for no other reason than FC5 hosts Xorg 7.0 and FC6 hosts 7.1. nVidia and ATI proprietary drivers work (mostly) with 7.0, but not yet with 7.1, so its pretty impossible to include 7.1 as a "simple" update to FC5.
Yeah, I know: proprietary drivers aren't exactly Fedora's problem. But satisfied customers are.
Also, FC6 is shooting for GNOME 2.16, which has some pretty big changes in itself.
