If I want a rolling upstream, why am I using EL?  You use a EL to
avoid quick releases and be on supported ABI compatible versions of
X,Y,Z for long periods of time.  The notable exceptions are things
like a LAMP stack, but RH provides subscriptions and updates to that
more frequently on EL.

A rolling repo should just be a symlink to Fedora. That's why Fedora exists.
