My question is, will it be possible to find a mid-route, which combines
the shortest possible vulnerability period with a minimal risk of having
DOA machines?

What do you think is the "mid-route" for time critical security fixes?

the mid-route seems to be that there are no longer 2107_FC5 kernels in fc5 updates or updates-testing.
My question wasn't specific to one particular issue. Obviously this
time, it was a mess up that has been fixed now.

fixed by removing a released/published package in updates ?

where is your problem?

-- fedora / redhat internals
==>  updates-testing + announcement
--  public testing,  (hours, days, weeks)
==>  updates + announcement
--  published update

i see no reason why a security update should take a shorter way.
