Where's the fix captured?  I checked 
https://github.com/CentOS/sig-cloud-instance-build but I don't see any 
commits since December.  Maybe I'm looking in the wrong repo?

This would be great; consuming known public AMIs is easier than having 
to subscribe every account to the marketplace.  IMHO the marketplace 
feels like it's really better suited for proprietary software--I don't 
like the idea of having to "register" every account that I might want to 
run CentOS VMs on.

Awesome; thanks!
