It's not a beta. It is more of a proving ground things that may be used in
future Red Hat releases. You won't be able to update from Fedora to any
Red Hat release without needing to do some extra work to resolve conflicts
as you might expect updating from a beta version of a soon to be released
product to the final product.

While isn't intented to be unstable things, get missed sometimes and updates
can break things for some of the users. The breakage rate seems to be higher
than what happens for Red Hat products, so in that sense there is higher
risk to take into account as with running a beta version of a product.
