PHP6 is not used, because the PHP6-Core Team has moved the release date 
to "unknown" release-date. To late for TYPO3 5.0. But there are some 
class providing function of PHP6.

Check out http://5-0.dev.typo3.org/.

Robert said something about it.
So I'm relativly sure namespaces will be used, but until now you cannot 
use them. (I think the whole project will be refactored)

You don't need required anymore. Classes are autoloaded.

Normally you are not allowed to use the "new". For creating objects you 
have to use the ComponentManager. Pretty cool thing. The CM is already 
implemented. With the you can manage different Version of the same Class 

But better wait for an answer of Robert or Karten ;)
