What is the RHEL style now?  They have 5.1.x and 5.2.  5.2 has new
features, 5.1.x keeps the same ABI.

The z-Streams (x.y.z) are nothing new, they existed for a longer time already and EPEL afaics ignores them (at least right now).

New "features" like major new Firefox/OpenOffice Versions iirc happened in the past already now and then. But that were just a few hand-selected desktop-packages. The only thing that afaics really is new in 5.2: a gtkhtml update broke the ABI. Okay, that changes things a bit, but it's just one out of thousand packages and likely a special exception (and such exceptions are allowed in EPEL as well).

So IMHO not much changed. And the major differences between Fedora- and RHEL-style are still very much obvious IMHO if one leaves those few special cases aside.
