My two cents are that if you have those stringent of requirements you'd
be using RHEL, anyways.

I'd be interested to hear an expansion on this a bit more.  Claims or
no claims, SL is rebuilt from RHEL sources just as CentOS is.  Are
there specific examples of ABI breakage introduced?

It would be great to see these two fantastic projects collaborate (and
I know they do to some degree already).
