Actually, historically[1], no, Red Hat (its two words, not one) has NOT
recompiled just to remove the tag. Take a look at a Red Hat Enterprise
Linux 5.0 GA tree some time, its littered with packages that have a
.fc6 tag in them. :)

But "RHEL does X" is indeed irrelevant either way.

[1] doesn't mean a mass rebuild won't happen for RHEL6. Also doesn't
mean that it will. Hand-wavy "can't talk about unreleased products"...
