Basically I agree with you on most points. As for changes to gnome, I have seen that these are part of the upstream mess and I don't like them. Moved to KDE.

My wife won't let me move her to F7 until it works well on the desktop. Until then FC4 on her laptop.

If you don't want stuff newer than FC6, why not install Centos5? It is very much like (as in almost identical) to FC6 and will be for a very very long time.
