That is how Red Hat ships the product. I expect that it is not a
default stream because of internal rules on what is a default stream
or not. [My guess** is that default modules can not be updated
'rapidly' so if FreeIPA 8 were shipped in 8.0 it would need to be long
term maintained but if it is shipped as a non-default they can put out
a FreeIPA9 whenever they wanted to.]

** While I work at Red Hat, I do not know what the rules for
default/non-default are. I would have to go look at access.redhat.com
like anyone else which I haven't :).
