There is no clear answer to this yet. The issue is complicated however
by the fact that Extras buildsystem is seperate from the Red Hat
internal buildsystem Core and RHEL both currently use. I'm sure the
buildsystem constraints factor into how Red Hat decides where to keep
RHEL relevant components under their control.
