Personally, I'd prefer to keep CR separate and have the main releases as
they've been.

The idea behind CentOS is that it is super stable and matches upstream.
I worry that merging CR will hurt the stability. I've enabled CR on some
test nodes and started seeing issues, minor though they may be.

So +1 to keeping the status quo. :)
