I think it is. At least I think you need the livecd-creator from f11.
Possibly other things. ;(
I do all my test composes on rawhide machines.
Fedora 10 has SquashFS 3, whereas Fedora 11 has SquashFS 4. This is
incompatible. Fedora 10 might create an ISO with a SquashFS 3 filesystem
image on it, but the kernel on the ISO will attempt to mount it as
SquashFS 4 and fail.
