FESCo decided to not do a mass rebuild for f22, but gcc-5 (with a
change to config from f23) was approved to land in f22.

Yes, but as far as I know the gcc maintainers are still patching up
issues found via these bugs. It would be good to actually fix those in
gcc before we go rebuilding everything with it. 

So, it's somewhat up to gcc maintainer(s) IMHO... when they feel gcc-5
is ready to rebuild everything.

This would be a decision for FESCo and/or releng. I was just providing
my opinion on it.
