I think it is much better to hookup preupgrade with PackageKit so you get notification on your desktop when there is a new release and a easy path to do so. Notifying and encouraging users to upgrade would solve the problem of people sticking to old unmaintained releases in a much nicer way.

Funny you say that, we added functionality to do this about 2 days ago.
The daemon parts are in place, we just have to write the yum code (copy
out of preupgrade) and then launch preupgrade when we show the user some
new UI.

Yes, I filed a RFE against packagekit and posted to the packagekit development list about this since a number of distributions are developing preupgrade like solutions and a common framework was needed. Thanks for doing this.
