I just did a couple more upgrades, these at my house and on every 
occasion (without xen kernels installed) grub was NOT updated properly. 
  In each case (3 in fact) grub.conf was left with the 
no-longer-available FC6 kernel as the default boot kernel and I had to 
manually edit it.

I no longer consider this just a bug for xen kernels, but a bug in F7 
all around.
