And why aren't those reasons satisfied with RHEL/CentOS which doesn't

For me, CentOS is an ultra conservative, stagnating distro not meeting
my demands. It may-be suitable for those who want to set up a server and
run it with minimal support for the next 4 years - To me it's non
interesting.

I don't think a kernel or libc should be "interesting" and the only reason to change them should be to get one that works with new hardware. Server apps also tend to be mostly feature-complete even in old versions. However desktop apps are evolving rapidly and there really is a missing spot in fedora/rhel style distributions since nothing provides both kernel/core library stability and current application versions.
