The funny thing is, the point you're bringing up is quite the reverse.

In SL it reads:
"> ... we have added several packages to Scientific Linux that are not 
found anywhere in the upstream release, including IceWM, OpenAFS, "

In Centos it reads:
"CentOS Extras - This repository contains items that provide additional 
functionality to CentOS ... horde framework and packages, freenx, apt, 
XFCE, and yumex"

What is right though, in SL these extra packages exist in the default 
repo, not in an extra repo - but it is enabled by default in Centos.
