Not unless you can identify a good reason (i.e. feature requirements,
security, end-of-life). 6.3 end-of-life is estimated around January
31, 2010, so you still have some time. :-)

Upgrade ports based on security/feature requirements. We generally do
not "upgrade" production servers from one release to another while
they're still expected to be in production.
You'll probably get a lot of different suggestions from this list --
