Mobile Client Software Factory uses some of the API's of WM 5.0. e.g. Connection Monitor and the disconnected service agent use the WM5 apis. Platform upgrades of WM5 to 6 should not break the existing API's, so I think you have two options

1. compile and deploy WM5 code on WM6.
I think this is the safest route. You just need to confirm that it works as expected.
2. check the references in the source code of the MCSF. Replace WM5 apis with WM6 references and recompile and use this as an updated library for the MCSF.
Would not suggest to go via this route if 1 works fine.

Note : Some blocks do not have any platform dependendy and they could be used directly without any changes.
