Any upgrade process that doesn't take into account the released updates
and/or any third party repos that have been added is just a failure.  We
often see situations where key things like yum stop working because the
user updated too far in F10 before upgrading using the static F11 media,
and having yum from F10 be newer than yum from the static F11 CDs and
them boom.  Same things happens with other packages too.  Our
development process, for better or worse, leaves users with a very
difficult time upgrading unless they do online upgrades.

As for flexibility, netinstall with a local repo fed by the DVD seems
reasonable there for people that need that extra flexibility.
