Sure, but I doubt anyone really expects a substantial change as long as Red Hat uses Fedora as a perpetual beta for Red Hat Enterprise -- and foots the substantial tab for both their full-time developers. Quid pro quo. The volunteer community is also important, perhaps even equally (or more) so. And volunteers need a reason to volunteer. (One good one per volunteer will often suffice.) But at the end of the day either somebody has responsibility for driving this train, or we have another Debian. Red Hat has the commercial interest, and provides concomitant infrastructure and support.
Which isn't meant as a snipe at Debian. Only that we already have one of them. Canonical does well by it, but I doubt there's any real reason -- or interest -- in having another.
