No, the fasttrack channel/repo was supposed to be a rebuild of the 
upstream FasTrack channel, but it never really materialised, at least 
not for 5.x.

The choices are to put these 5.6 updates into the 5.5/updates repo and 
risk potential breakage in exchange for wider adoption or to put them 
into a testing channel where the vast majority of users would likely 
never see/deploy them.
