I mostly agree, however it seems to me that a true Fedora LTS is
missing, that would allow those who want things that are new, including 
for testing but cannot afford changing everything each year (servers for 
example or user desktops). It seems to me that fedora ends up being used
almost exclusively as single user desktop, so that testing of other
functionalities is likely to be less widespread. Fortunately, those
functionnalities certainly need less integration and so less testing in
fedora before they go to RHEL/CENTOS + EPEL, but still it would
certainly have some relevance, in my opinion.
