My thought is that there is some irony in the timing of your
question, since just yesterday[*] the OpenStack Technical Committee
seems to have reached a consensus that CentOS is no longer a stable
enough platform for pre-merge testing. Not necessarily anything
to do with running OpenStack on it specifically, but just that
generally it's the place where minimally-tested things go to see if
there are any problems with them before they wind up in RHEL. That's
a pretty close parallel to Debian's unstable/testing distributions
as the place where problems get worked out before they get into the
next stable release.

Taking things from an OpenDev Collaboratory perspective, we've
struggled to keep images for frequently-changing distros like
Fedora, Gentoo, or OpenSUSE Tumbleweed working at all because things
frequently change which break our ability to build or boot those
images. More static distributions like Debian stable, Ubuntu LTS,
or CentOS (before it became Stream), have a much less frequent
update cycle and so are far easier for us to plan for and stay on
top of.
