I did them in tandem upgrading from FC5 to FC6 w/o a problem on both
my master backend and primary frontend. Minor issues here and there
(more so on the x86_64 frontend, due to multilib support changes from
FC5 to FC6), but no major problems.

I don't use any DVD/CD stuff on my myth box, but I'd assume this is
due to gnome-mount and hal. FC6 mounts every disc by name at /media/
<disc-name>, rather than at /media/<drive-name>. (i.e., your
GREAT_MOVIE dvd gets mounted at /media/GREAT_MOVIE, rather than at /
media/dvd-rom now, and Myth is expecting a static mount location for
its media monitoring bits, iirc. At least, that'd be the case under
Gnome, not entirely sure what happens under other desktop
