People who want to have Rawhide already could use it, so it is pretty
unreasonable to assume that they want the same for Fedora. E.g. there
are updates that certainly should happen only in Rawhide, e.g. if they
require manual intervention. Afaik this is required regularly for
postgres updates, because the format of the database files changes.
