Can you mention which ones?
In between what we shipped in FC 4 updates (based on 20051126 snapshot
from gcc-4_0-branch) and now there were just 5 Fortran frontend fixes
and one libgfortran fix.  That's orders of magnitude below the threshold
for respining gcc rpms, so if there is a FC 4 gcc update (certainly not in
the next two months or so), it definitely won't be because of Fortran.
Compare that e.g. with 55 Fortran frontend changes between GCC 4.0.2 release
and what was included in FC 4 update.
If you need Fortran fixes, you definitely should upgrade to FC 5 and use
gcc 4.1, Fortran bugfixes are usually no longer backported to GCC 4.0
and there were hundreds of Fortran bugfixes between 4.0.x and 4.1.
