No, it is not. As you may have noticed, we had a release update a few
days ago, telling people that we're currently planning to release with
2.6.17. Though we're aware that it might be needed to update the kernel
in October, the current upstream release quality is not something we
want to rely on. 
Iff it is reasonable to use 2.6.17 as base and simply patch problematic
parts, instead of shortening the time-frame in which we can test the
release kernel to 6 weeks, we should IMO use the older kernel.

For the future, I would prefer if we [1] could perhaps start discussing
such issues before announcing different things to the public.
