Based upon my experience with Zimbra (and other similar vendors), I'm a
big fan of NOT having anything that they don't explicitly support
touching the Zimbra box. It helps keep the fingerpointing to a minimum
when things end up going wrong; if they can point to the OS as a reason
to claim a box is "unsupported," they will; compared to the cost of a
Zimbra license, the $400 or whatnot for RHEL is inconsequential.
