One big reason RH is in Fedora is for the RHEL it makes out of it
One big reason a lot of people use Fedora is the RedHat touch they get
for free. So it's a symbiotic relationship.

I for one would be the last to complain I have access in FC to large
parts of RHEL. We're not talking about resources Red Hat is taking from
parts of Fedora to reallocate elsewhere (which is IMHO a large part of
what's extra is about). We're talking about ressources Red Hat already
allocated for its *paying* customers and is sharing for free with FC
users (If you just take a peek at who's maintaining the java packages
you'll see they're not people already contributing heavily to other
parts of FC. So don't worry your packages are safe).

Complaining about a free gift is not overly polite.
