No this is totally not the case. In fact, FSO isn't even a distribution. 
Let me quote Mickey:

   "In practice, this means once the framework has reached a certain
   extent (see for our tasks, issues, and
   milestones), we can expect it to be seen in all kinds of products,
   likely including further releases of the ASU."

It's the framework / middleware project that will provide the foundation 
for future Om releases (probably the first will be 2009).

FSO is also, BTW, designed to be generic enough to be used for more than 
just Om. But make no mistake, future versions of Om will use this 
framework. We've invested lots of time and money into it.
