It is (unofficially) possible to "side-grade" between them. But to go from Fedora to RHEL/CentOS you can only do it by hanging back (as much as you can without sliding out of the security update window) on your Fedora upgrades until a window opens in which the new RHEL/CentOS packages are newer than your current Fedora packages and you can do it.
And that right there is the challenge to rise to. Can this be handled better? Is there the community interest to make room for a better way to do that transition? Can things be more structured to create better understood transition windows? Quite frankly is a totally unexplored area of discussion.
