While compiling stuff here I already have this list of missing packages 
(more are coming because some additional stuff are still in the build pipe).


Should this really be done on a case-by-case basis? Why not providing 
the separated repo with all missing assets? A keep it simple approach?
Upstream do not provide it because they do not give support for such 
parts of RHEL. CentOS does not give any support anyway, so why holding 
this back? Or is upstream slowing this down?
