Since this is the second time this has come up...

Is being part of RHEL reason enough to keep things in core?  If that is 
the case I will exclude from my list all packages that exist in RHEL. 
Personally I don't think that should be the goal here.

If you want RHEL compatibility then get a RHEL knockoff.
