I'd have said the same:  If you trust CentOS enough to update 
automatically, then Stream will be an easy migration for you. You'll get 
a distribution that's just as trustworthy, with the added benefit that 
you'll get security fixes much sooner than CentOS did.

You'll get updated versions of software when they're ready, rather than 
once every 6-8 months.  They'll be roughly the same versions that RHEL 
will get later.
