I think the sender was meaning about the RHBA/RHSA numbers.
If the referred CR package contains both the RHBA-2011-1067 and
RHSA-2011-1245 I think they should be both present in the body of the
announce message, so also the link:
http://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2011-1245.html

BTW: +1 for the question about CentOS 6.1 and 6.0CR updates..
