You're not mistaken, but no so many features will be left out of 2.6.
Some of them can be easily replaced by newer ones (for example, IDE-SCSI
was used mainly for CD-Burning, but now you can use direct ATAPI
CD-Burning), and some will be superseded by newer versions, like LVM2 or
EVMS.

For mainstream usage, I think 2.6 is ready for most of the people out
there.
