Sorry I don't quite get what you mean by "sense of brand loyalty" and
"corporate world concerns". Can you explain specifically what you mean by
those terms?

Distros like Fedora and Ubuntu are mostly developed on the lines set
by their respective corporate groups.

I am talking about the nature of local ecosystem of these and similar
communities. The dynamics of development within these groups suggests
that the active developers have accepted the state of affairs.

What may be a possible solution?

Do you mean you disagree the development of those distributions as guided by those corporate groups? Even so, since those distributions are made up of mostly free software, isn't the beauty of free software that you can fork those distributions and do what *you* want with them? If you disagree with how those corporate groups develop a piece of free software, couldn't you take advantage of the freedom by changing the software?

Or are you talking about some other ill effect?
