i've just wondered why sendmail is still the default MTA in Fedora.
Please enlighten me?

It works. It can be configured to do just about anything. Everyone who has every worked with a unix-like system is used to it. Every program written for unix-like systems is likely to expect it to be installed. Even though the original design and code weren't particularly secure, the current version is probably one of the most audited pieces of code and the milter capability lets you extend it with features that don't share the full permissions of the main process yet can interact in real time during delivery.
