There's an expectation that a later beta of a product will be in
"better shape." Unfortunately, that's not fair, given the desire to
incorporate packages such as the newest GNOME. So Red Hat has
additional work to do.
If Red Hat were to release a later beta that was in noticably worse
shape, I'm sure we'd see a lot of critical media on the topic. As the
market leader, Red Hat is held to a higher standard.
I think that was the case for the 5.0 and 6.0 Beta chains.. THere were
some bugs in a later beta and Red Hat got nothing but grief about how
shoddy they were.
