Why not?  Hell this system started as FC1 and I updated it to test2 fine
and now I'm using latest rawhide... what's wrong with Yummin' it up? 
Any specific problems you can think of?

This is true.  The first thing I did was install 2.6.0-test9 back a few
months ago (at 1.6.5-1.358 now), and then upgrade the other packages in
increments, seems to work fine.  I haven't had any issues with this
approach, my system is running better than before... aside from new bugs
in kernel 2.6.5-1.x...
