Little things that matter in language design
RHEL 7 and Gnome extensions

And Fedora is not RHEL, the 2 have separate decision making groups, different release cycles, different goals. While packages are mostly based on Fedora ( easy to check using the srpm ), not all of them are in Fedora. For example, non free stuff is a example, or package that fedora didn't accept yet, like for some specific software like pulp, katello.
And the that are coming from Fedora get a extra round of QA, various checks ( license, crypto and export check, etc ). I would not be surprised if the Common Criteria or NIST had also some requirement regarding auditing and build.
Also, I think there is much more freedom for selecting the version of packages in RHEL, as there is more time for that and no expectation to run the latest and greatest.
Finally, AFAIK, there is no public planning for the release, so you cannot do much except speculate about what will be shipped. That doesn't sound a very productive way to spent your time.
