I was about to say that that is exactly what RHEL-to-CentOS is for, but
thinking about it, I think I know what your problem is with CentOS.

One thing not factored with CentOS is how old it is compared to the
version of Fedora that it's supposed to be based upon. If I understand
you correctly, your concept of LTS is based on the Final stable release
of Fedora and will be supported for two years as opposed to some version
of CentOS which upon release is probably years behind the final release
of rawhide it was based on and therefore obsolete with hardware (which
also has a fast release cycle). (Could someone do the math?)

Did I understand your problem correctly?
