With syslinux it is possible to provide boot-options automatically based 
on hardware. So we could build a small database with known boot-options 
for CentOS kernels (and keep contact-info for new kernel respins) so it 
would automagically work.

It does require either a specialized module, or better, lua-scripting 
support, which is not officially supported yet.
