They might argue that Fedora is much more of a moving target than RHEL
or Centos, and possibly less likely to be used in corporate settings (I
don't know if the latter is true of course).

I think that is very likely the reason, and would add that a) software that runs on
CentOS or RHEL needs minimal or zero changes to run on the other OS while
Fedora would often need changes, and b) Fedora has a higher percentage of
new to linux users so tech support requires more "hand-holding".

We used to run Red Hat and CentOS web servers. We had to migrate away from them due to their antique software. Some (many?) enterprises may like the fact that the platform has 10 or 15 year old software so their 20 year old web apps don't need to be refreshed. And trying to get updated software via Software Collection (SCL) knows it is the pits.

But we found the antique software too limiting. We could not even run modern MediaWiki software on our Red Hat and CentOS web servers. We use Fedora server nowadays. We get the latest versions of packages carried by the distro, and we get SElinux. And it runs a modern LAMPs stack.

And we avoid the antique software and its unknown and unfixed bugs. Hacking teams love that old software that is no longer being maintained. It means their exploits will usually work forever.
