No.  When CentOS-6 is released, a yum update on a CentOS-5 box won't
update you to 6.  You will be able to use yum to update, but it won't
be a supported method, much like with Fedora.  There are folks here
who have updated from Fedora 1 all the way through Fedora 11 using
yum.  It's possible with a little effort, but it's not supported.
