This is most apparent with web browsers, where Mozilla and Google have a release cycle measured in weeks, not months.

If I understand correctly, Fedora is already a partially rolling release today (the kernel package).
It becomes kind of a matter of semantics. Simply put, we update 'stable' Fedora releases to the latest stable upstream kernel, we no longer leave them on the kernel branch they were on when they were released. F16, F17 and F18 are all on kernel 3.6.5 right now.

We do the same for Firefox too, we follow the upstream releases. It's not feasible to do anything else, really. F16, F17 and F18 all have Firefox 16. We don't officially package Chrom(e/ium), so that's not a problem.
