I don't doubt about Johnny Hughes says in his email, but there is an 
important point is not to taken into account: SL5.6 is not released and 
Johnny makes his comparision between SL and CentOS 5.6.

ok, then the principal two reasons to don't fusion CentOS and SL are:

  a) SL is not "binary compatible"

  b) SL binaries are linked in different manner than TUV does.
