I hear what you're saying but I think it's a false dichotomy.  Being
able to take FE packages and create them for RHEL is supplying value for
RHEL customers directly; Red Hat only indirectly.  What it really does
is allow RHEL customers to support each other in the same community as
Fedora Extras.  If I use RHEL and I want a package from FE, I can sign
up to comaintain RHEL branch for myself and others.  In return, another
RHEL customer might already be maintaining another package that I would
like to use.  In this light, Red Hat is actually donating build
infrastructure and a framework for collaboration to their customers (and
non-customers as this will benefit CentOS users as well)
