To my mind it should be handled just like the kernel is handled.  Released
when it includes important updates, even if they're not security related.

If we let the binary-driver providers dictate what open source software
can be released and when the terrorists win ;o)  More seriously, this
is about getting better open source software into the hands of more
users.  7.1 includes much better support for some higher end ATI cards
for instance.  And it's not like it's the end of the world for
binary-driver users, they just need to add an exclude into their yum
config.
