If  I'm not able to get binary compatibility, I don't want users thinking 
they're running CentOS, with the full binary compatibility that implies.  
Rebranding in this case wouldn't be so that it would be 'my' build, but 
rebranding would be so that my users won't get the wrong impression of CentOS 
when they find binary incompatibilities.

And when I say 'users' I'm talking about my own internal users; if we can get 
binary compatibility then I'm fine with this becoming the base for 'real' 
CentOS ia64 and being distributed as such, should that be desired and enough 
interest, for the bandwidth it will require, is expressed.
