No, it means that updating gnome would mean updating a bunch of
libraries that are used by other apps. This would require a lot of
rebuilds, and they might fail due to a number of reasons.

Upgrading the desktop is potentially a big operation. I am very happy
with the release scheme that is used with Gnome, OpenOffice, GCC and so
on. If you want the newest and shiniest, use the newest release of
Fedora.
