Think clearly about using a parasitic distribution that takes the source
of a supported product and deprives the primary support organization
of it's beer money.

If you cannot afford RHEL at the list price call and beg. Then do what
has to be done.

If you like the added value and twiddle that the secondary packaging
folks add then sure.

And yes "parasitic distribution" is a bit loaded.  If you can operate
in a symbiotic way to the "community" on a secondary distribution have
at it (IMO).

In many ways that is what RH is doing.  They are symbiotic in this
GPL, opensource, GNU, Linux world we are in.

Free as in speech not as in beer, an interesting concept.
