You get provoked unnecessarily I must say.

You forget the presence of various other projects such as  Legacy, 
Documentation, Websites, Infrastructure etc...

Very unlikely.  RHEL is too boring for a community to participate. It is 
almost stagnant which is great for enterprises but not for the 
community. If RHEL would have been suitable for everyone Red Hat wouldnt 
started Fedora or vice versa. Fedora's rapid release cycle with tons of 
feature updates, many of them from Red Hat is a key process of enabling 
the community. The development methodology of "Release early, Release 
often" combined with donations from Red Hat combined with the many 
community sub projects within the Fedora Foundation is what provides 
value for Fedora.
