I'm confused as to exactly what you are saying here. The CentOS Project 
FAQ states:

Q. How long after redhat publishes a fix does it take for CentOS to 
publish a fix?

A. Our goal is to have individual RPM packages available on the mirrors 
within 72 hours of their release, and normally they are available within 
24 hours.

Are you implying that you will provide security updates under a paid SLA 
agreement but not to the wider CentOS Community?
