If you say that other distributions - do you mean just Linux
distributions or BSB distributions as well? - offer a special kind of
upgrade path, whatever that should be, you should explain what you mean
with that to be able to say whether that is possible with Fedora/Redhat
in the same way.

Either, upgrading is upgrading and always means to get your whole system
to a higher state and not just updating applications. I do not know any
Linux distribution that would have a different policy.

So please feed us with details and names.
