Why does the 'unconfirmed' status disappear after 6 blocks are generated after a new transaction?

It doesn't mean anything - it stays unconfirmed for the first 5 then it just says blocks I think.  The number is how many confirmations it's gotten.  I guess the idea is that the more confirmations, the more likely it is a 'legit' transaction according to other nodes, so the more likely you are to be able to spend those bitcoins later.
