RHEL 6: already obsolete ?

Congrats to Red Hat for the hard work. However, I do hope (along with probably many others) that the user space will not become ridiculously crusty like it did RHEL 5.
Amongst the many examples, one is Python 3.x -- it would be nice to have this parallel installable with the Python 2.6 release. Another would be GCC 4.6/4.7/etc when it comes out -- the improved/full support for C++0x will be a very important feature.
Looking at the stuff available in RHEL 6 beta already raises questions of obsolescence. For example, why KDE 4.3 when 4.4 has been around for a while? Why OpenOffice 3.1 when 3.2 is out? The now ancient Firefox 3.5?
