I would be a lot more amazed if they finally came out and admitted
that they're not always doing good things for the community and that
perhaps they should work WITH a project that's already in place, such
as, oh... say... DEBIAN! :)

As much as I like RH for advancing GNU/Linux in general, I think some
of their business decisions aren't the greatest. Not to mention some
of their compatibility issues. Does anyone remember gcc 2.96?

Rather than trying to do what Debian has been doing for years, I'd
much rather see them JOIN with Debian to further promote
community-supported distros.
