In layman's language summary: RedHat Enterprise features (including "live" kernel patching) are to be expected _only_ in RedHat Enterprise "binary replica" distributions, which CentOS Stream is not.

I don't think that's true, exactly.  As far as I know, rebuild distributions never had the "Enterprise" features*.  Critically, I think that a lot of people mistakenly believed that CentOS *did* have Enterprise features, because it was rebuilt from RHEL code, and that misunderstanding underlies a great deal of the negative response toward CentOS Stream.

*: "Enterprise" features include but are not limited to:

1. Minor releases with independent life cycles / Extended Update Support
2. Classification for updates (security, bugfix, enhancement)
3. Live patching for kernel security vulnerabilities
4. Support
