development and extras-development are for developing the next 
version of Fedora, they aren't even beta software. It's a 
mistake to use them on a system that isn't intended for 
development work, or if you aren't a Fedora developer or tester.

Yes, but you would have to do a clean re-install of FC5 to get 
rid of development packages.
