I don't think Fedora will not be polished enough for deployment -- it
will most likely be other things that will keep "the enterprise" from
using it:

- no support
- no guarantees (e.g. ABI-wise)
- short life cycle (though Fedora Legacy might weaken this point)

I for myself expect (not in the sense of demanding it -- except from
myself -- but rather thinking it will happen this way) Fedora to be very
polished, after all it's the developers' collective reputation that's on
stake ;-).
