Fedora isn't "holding back" to 7.0. FC6 will ship 7.1, which, I think, everyone agrees is a good thing. What some people disagree with (myself included) is whether it's good to ship 7.1 to existing FC5 users. I'd say, no, it's not good, because that breaks some users' systems. That's bad software engineering, breaking a working system for no good reason. The users of FC5 who NEED 7.1 already DON'T have a working system, and so they can't say their situation is any worse. And they can always install 7.1 manually.
