I think you missed the point. The point is the packages in centosplus
will not be installed by default. So it WILL NOT HURT. Only those know
about it will try to use it. That's a totally different thing than tell
Redhat and wait, until the patch is available to EVERYONE. Most non-CJK
people do not need it.
