I guess «eating your own dog food» and thus running fairly new kernels all the time.

Fedora 9 was mentioned.

Not that you can't run Fedora 9 on a new kernel, but that would not seem to be a compelling reason for the choice of distribution.

Yeah, but this is a set of machines where if they go down kernel
development basically grinds to a halt, and which doesn't need whizzy new
features except as needed to cope with rising load (and it sounds like
even that is largely handled by adding more machines these days).

Upgrade conservatism is definitely called for here.
