No ... at least not and still maintain it as CentOS.  RedHat does not
provide, for free, RPM updates for their Enterprise products.

CentOS is a redistribution of the RedHat SRPMS, rebuilt following
RedHat's rules concerning trademark and logo policy.  If you were able
to get RedHat updates (which you aren't allowed to get without a
subscription), you might violate their trademark / logo policy by adding
items that were removed from CentOS.
