just forked for development of entirely new features? I.o.w. do we 2
current or 2 stable branches now?
Those are just names, don't worry too much about it.  RELENG_7 will be
the start of a new -STABLE branch once it is released.

That is actually what I'm worried about. It means drivers are less likely to be MFC'd to RELENG_6 from 7.0-RELEASE onwards - I was hoping that wouldn't happen till 7.1.

It's called progress. This is normal. If you need a driver that is happening in 7- only, then upgrade to 7. RELENG_6 will turn into a "supported fix branch" or whatever the name is and RELENG_7 is where the action takes place, just like it has been going on for quite some time (please correct me if I'm wrong).
