Why?? You can use it anywhere you like. You are unlikely to get Red Hat to say
to use Fedora on production servers since they are touting RHEL for production
servers. I fail to see why a designation from a bunch of people writing columns,
who in most cases would not know a clue if it jumped up and bit them is important.
Especially for a distro that is not trying to make money, is not for sale anywhere.
is not supported, etc. If someone outside of Red Hat is trying to make a buck by
supporting it then it is up to them to convince people that Fedora is not a 
hobbyist distro.

Just my $.02
