Indeed (although migrating the playbooks to 2.x isn't that difficult). 
Upstream has an extensive test suite and is pretty fast in addressing 
the few bugs that occasionally slip through, not to mention the security 
fixes. I've been using Ansible's stable releases privately for quite a 
while (via MacPorts), without ever experiencing any serious regressions 
- even minor annoyances have been rare.

Since Fedora already makes the effort to provide the current Ansible 
releases in EPEL, it would be a pity not to take advantage of that.
