RHEL also makes a number of configuration changes and there are dependency differences between them as a result. How do you account for all that differences in updates? Fedora includes about 5 times more software packages than RHEL. What about security updates for all those software that is in Fedora but not in RHEL ? That gap continues to increase as well since the Fedora repository continues to grow at a rapid rate while RHEL repository size don't grow that much.

One such huge difference is the existence of mono or not.  Fedora has
mono, RHEL does not.

Is that likely to continue to be the case for the next RHEL?

Lots of things do link against mono in Fedora, or
build mono subpackages, but don't in RHEL.  That's a whole can of worms
to get into when trying to do an update for something.

I'd expect silverlight/moonlight to become something fairly essential within the life of the next enterprise release, especially if netflix streaming works on it.
