All of those apply to 5.6 ( where apply implies that they link into 5.6 
code; which literally just got finalised in the last day or so ).

Having said that, I've done a fair bit of work on the updates and hope 
to get them released into the 5.5/updates tree either later today or 
tomorrow. It might be a case of first hosting them into a testing repo, 
publicly so more people can confirm that deep linking and inherited 
issues are no longer a 'breaker'. But that testing will need to be 
fairly short and sweet, keep an eye on centos-devel for more info
