Agreed. CentOS-5.6 will only upgrade to 5.7, 5.8, ...
6.0 will in a similar fashion become 6.1, 6.2, ...
If you have a system where yum wants to install the CentOS-6 centos-release
then either the distribution network is horribly messed up or you've got an
incorrectly modified local yum configuration. My guess is on the latter.
