The community is large and comes to Fedora for a lot of reasons. Some people in community, I am one of them, did in fact come in no small part because of the downstream consumption of Fedora in RHEL.

I hope most of the community does care about the goals and interests of its users (both end users of the distribution as well as downstream consumers of the distribution). That doesn't mean the community has to do anything to help achieve those goals and interests, but it seems idiotic to ignore them entirely and to not help contributors achieve their goals so long as they are consistent with the project goals.
