Sounds stupid, but afaics it's just two:

(1) having Fedora in the name.

(2) having all the package available that are Fedora and Add-On repos ship

"1" sounds stupid, but afaics it's really a big problem for a lot of people. They simply view CentOS as something completely different, which it IMHO not really is. Maybe Fedora and CentOS should merge? Or maybe RH should simply start to distribute the RHEL bits freely.

Problem "2" is slowly getting fixed; EPEL now ships lots of those Fedora packages that are missing in RHEL/CentOS. More are needed, but that will happen over time. RPM Fusion will soon support RHEL/CentOS + EPEL as well, so most things soon will just work similarly on Fedora and RHEL/CentOS.
