That should tell you that we’re not dealing with a single universal sense of the word “enterprise”.  If we can’t agree on its meaning, we can’t sensibly argue about how well RHEL adheres to that meaning.

Hallo, hallo, the majority of the world is not the US of A. Our chosen
dictionaries are not US of A ones. 

Probably within the next ten years a Chinese originated version of Linux
will supplant many of the US of A versions.  No doubt .mil is currently
seeking a more secure version of any commercial or free operating system
after its publicly embarrassing hacking. The US of A's DoD is never ever
going to confess how deep the hackers penetrated.

Being in the real world rather than in the hectic and unstable 'change
every 6 months Fedora environment', just what are the RHEL/Centos 8
options at this moment? Real users of RHEL/SL/Centos want 

1. stability
2. reliability
3. security revisions
4. bug fixes

Many real users lack the time - because time is always finite - to
comprehensively monitor the multitude of Fedora lists.

Ideally, before RH decides to impose an abstract version of Fedora upon
the world, RH could ask for comments and give everyone sufficient time
to respond.

Bored clever people who never really run anything on a daily basis
should remember that if they wish to play games, then Centos is probably
not the best Linux. Neither is RHEL/SL. Having a high IQ is never an
indication of common, or of any other practical, sense.

Progress for progress's sake is not beneficial.
