I think what Rahul is trying to impress upon us is that RHEL is to be
treated like any other distro spinner out there. Fedora chooses its
default but makes it easy for anyone else to customize their spin as
they see it. They're also welcome to provide feedback. Fedora isn't
trying to be the perfect default. It's just chosen its target and allows
others to spin off of it.
