This is more for issues related to the development of Fedora rather
than end-user questions

You should not be affected by the nouvaeu bugs when using the
proprietary drivers, and the nvidia one seems to have quite a simple
work-around. How the upgrade works will largely be dependant on how
you installed it - but I'd guess the safest way would be disabling
using the nvidia drivers when doing the upgrade.
