I *wish* it made a difference. I did an upgrade am an left with a host

For example people with updates-testing enabled on fc10 got a
non-upgraded yum because the versions were the same (except for
fc10/fc11) and it stopped working because python went from 2.5 to 2.6.

That's messed up. We used to check just before release time that this
situation never occured.  It should probably be added to the rel-eng
release checklist if it isn't there already.

Not possible while we allow people to keep making updates to the older releases. Those updates quickly become version ( not just release even ) higher than the static copies on the release medium and repos.
