This is an exhaustive list, which kind of defeats the point of
"highlights."  However, you are completely correct that these are all
very worthy features.  We had to choose a small list on which to
concentrate, which is the only rational strategy since we're covering
them with limited resources.

Part of the reason we choose highlights and build stories around them,
rather than trying to do this with every single feature, is that Red
Hat Marketing lends substantial support to our campaign around each
release.  They also have finite resources with which to do this work
and have asked me repeatedly for the past few releases to center in on
a handful of features that have immediate broad appeal or compelling
stories we can build around them.
