I would rather stick with the el6 iso if possible for the reasons mentioned in the previous email. However, if there are no plans to continue with the production of el6 ovirt-node iso's I'll switch to fc19.
So I suppose the question still stands, are there plans to release an el6 iso for oVirt Node 3.0.3-1-1?

not sure i agree. there are differences between the fedora and .el6 distro's, especially around things like testing of backward compatibility for live migration between different versions (for a clean upgrade path).
the fedora one covers newer features / fast moving the .el6 one is more robust / tested.
so depends on what you are trying to do.
