We do put out major release beta's. There was a CentOS-4/beta as well as 
a CentOS-5/Beta.

Point releases's dont have public release upstream, which is why we dont 
get them, and we cant release them. If Redhat was to make those beta's 
public, we'd be more than happy to churn them out to the public.

And thats not only for the 'Distro', but also 'add on' stuff like the 
WebStack, MRG, IPA etc.
