I suspect the FC3 upgrade was tested on an unpatched FC2 install and on
a fully up-to-date FC2 install.  I would be surprised if Red Hat did any
testing with some packages up to date and some not.

Almost all of the errata I remember reading state that the assumption is
that all previous errata have been applied.

It's better to be a live chicken than a dead duck.  Upgrades are tough
enough without bending the rules.

You may find that it all works for you, but then you may not.  And you
may never know why, or you'll wonder why you didn't listen to me :-)
