What it is actually called is fairly meaningless. Linus always call the kernel pre stable releases as rc's. Fedora has included openoffice.org 2.0 "milestone" release, gaim 2.0 beta, dovecot beta etc in general releases of Fedora before. Not to mention the gcc release from Red Hat Linux days .

What really matters is how much testing that particular software got externally and in a Fedora environment, upstream and developer coordination etc. Sometimes alphas or betas or random cvs snapshots are much more stable than the previously supposedly stable release and is even recommended by upstream in some instances.
