I have run FCP 7.03 without issue (OS-wise) up to OS 10.7.5, others here are running happily on Mountain Lion - obviously I have at times needed to update plug-ins and ancillary software etc but overall not had any problems. With the major OS changes like from Snow Leopard to Lion etc I have always done a clean install but not on incremental updates.

That said is there a a compelling reason to update your OS mid project ? Because the law of sod is potentially going to kick in and ruin your otherwise nice day.

Have to confess I dont remember what happens between 10.6.6 and 10.6.8 in terms of additional features though.

Might be time consuming but perhaps do a total back up of your drive so you can roll back in the event of something nasty happening.

If you dont have Time machine then Carbon Copy Cloner is very good - I have used it many times

best wishes
