From the way I read the article, its Verizon's choice to use OS 5.
RIM are launching the 9300 elsewhere with OS 6.
I think with the launch of the device so close, Verizon decided they didn't have time to spend their usual amount of time [a bloody long time] looking at OS 6 before approving it; hence the "OS 6 at a later date". Knowing Verizon, it may be not at all.
