non-FC5 upstream updates?

I read at distrowatch that this will contain upstream updates that are not part of FC5. The following taken from distrowatch weekly news:

" ... quite a few major applications were upgraded to newer upstream versions. These include the Linux kernel (upgraded to version 2.6.16), Beagle (0.2.6), Epiphany (2.14.1), Ethereal (0.99.0), Firefox (1.5.0.3), GIMP (2.2.11), GNOME (2.14.1), K3B (0.12.14), KDE (3.5.2), MySQL (5.0.21) and PHP (5.1.4), just to mention a few popular ones. "

won't this break compatibility with applications which assume base versions are the same as FC5?
