On the delivery, yeah. But centos-stream is not going to get any
radical update, because things go to RHEL after. There is internal
gating in place to verify the ABI (and kABI) is not broken, and people
aren't going to push "latest upstream" version unlike Rawhide. And the
process of deciding what feature go, and what can be supported is still
the same. 

But for example, something like 
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1762161#c0 would be easier
to correct, since we would have to wait for RHEL release (and/or
exfiltrate kernel rpms from the intranet)

I understand why folks make a fuzz about c8s (our com was not great, to
say the least...), but in practice, that's just swapping RHEL and
Centos order in the pipeline (before, stuff went to RHEL, then got
rebuild by Centos, now that will be the reverse, more or less).
