Umm.  No one is officially working on it, as far as I know.

I'm glad that my notes helped you.  I was hoping to migrate some i586 
machines from Fedora 7 to CentOS 5, but never quite got around to that.  
Perhaps you could organize your steps into a wiki page -- even though 
there is no official support, at least the steps will be there if 
someone else is interested in trying them out.
