As was stated at Red hat summit though .. while Stream will not be a
copy of the downstream RHEL code anymore .. it WILL BE extreamly similar
to RHEL + a couple months.  In fact at 8.4 release .. Stream is very
similar t0 RHEL 8.4 with NO WAITING.  CentOS Linux 8 getting upgraded to
the 8.4 source code, tested, isos created, etc .. will take a month or
so, Stream already has all that content in it RIGHT NOW.

I think that is a positive , not a negative.
