I've run into that in a slightly different context.

OLPC is running NetworkManager 6.5, the Fedora repository (and hence 
yum) has moved to 7.0.

I don't think that's going to happen. I believe that there was a 
conscious decision to stay with 6.5 for release 8.2 to avoid having to 
change other parts of the networking code.

 > yum update used to work perfectly fine with update.1 711 with no errors.

I believe that that's because Fedora 7 used NM 6.5.
