Well, I'd qualify that - it should have up-to-date packages as of release (allowing for some delay from the testing cycle). But yeah, the people who actually use RHEL don't want major package updates to be pushed out, the way they are on Fedora and other desktop-oriented distros. Enterprise customers see that as a feature - the system is static, no unexpected changes coming in to surprise them.
