That is not true, there are plenty of changes to the kernel, including 
rebases's, updates, fix's and even new packages being added in and 
obsolete ones being removed.

CentOS-5 today has little in functional terms common to fedora6. There 
are still some leaf nodes from those days, but saying something like 
'freeze on changes to the OS' is just wrong.
