This is already there. For detailed information http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Firefox2

That's a excuse I hear to often these days (see gutenprint for example).
That why I'd like to see a Fedora Core Steering Commitee that jumps in
now and then.

In the case of AIGLX that wouldnt change anything. AIGLX status as a experimental add on repository means that it is not a priority.

No. FC4 shipped with Gnome 2.10. 2.12 was never shipped by FC. 2.14 was
in FC5. That 2.12 never was shipped in FC really sucked.

As I said earlier, putting major updates like this post release is a QA nightmare and should be avoided.

Personally I want to see a more formal update policy

There is a draft in the wiki that was included in the board update on Xorg 7.1
