I guess my expectation was that most of the "development" packages

yes, the packages will become official, if that's what you mean, but your computer will have yum configured for all the devel repos, not the standard repos which means whenever you do a yum update, you'll be updating to the latest devel stuff.
i may be mistaken, it is possible for the upgrader to automatically 
change all this stuff, but i'm not sure that it does.
any expert answers out there?

Releases are snapshots of the current development tree which is frozen for sometime to stabilize. This is a relatively short duration for test releases and longer for general releases.If you have enabled the development repository, you will have to disable it manually before Fedora Core 5 is released or you will move to into the development branch headed for the subsequent release which is Fedora Core 6.
If you are installing the test/development branch just to get to a head 
start, be aware that the development releases may have debugging options 
enabled and are intended for testers to provide feedback to developers 
through the fedora-test list discussions and bug reports in 
http://bugzilla.redhat.com. More serious testing would be very useful to 
get a better final release out of the door though.
