As far as I know you are perfectly entitled to do this.
As I understand the licensing, as long as the only machines that you are
putting the RH updates on are machines with valid RHN subscriptions then
the method you choose for pushing updates to them is your concern.

You could always ask RH customer service directly. They won't lie to you.

disclaimer (just in case): I work for RH, but I do not speak for them.
Any and all of the above is my personal interpretation/understanding.
