In time, it will. Right now isn't the time however, as there
are a number of things in 2.6.10 that weren't fixed.
A 2.6.10-ac update for FC3 is feasable though.

I think I've finally nailed the 'machine oopses on logout'
problem with the FC3 update kernels today. I'm trying to
get that built right now. If that works out, it'll be the
final 2.6.9 kernel for FC3, and I'll get a 2.6.10 update
into testing shortly afterwards.


It's great to not have to worry about flashing CAPS indicators with the newer kernels during logout.

I tested the devel kernel version in runlevel 3 and 5 and even with rhgb active. No oopses were experienced.
Previously, I had a random lockup with even the 2.6.9-1.681 kernel, but it was only occasionally occurring. I still have to test for duration of running without a lockup condition.

A 2.6.9 kernel for FC3 with included fixes would be a welcomed addition for FC3. A 2.6.10 kernel for testing would also be great.
