Is there any possibility of having AWS images published both as AMIs 
*and* in the AWS Marketplace?  Similar to what was done for CentOS 7 
[1], and what's being done for Fedora [2] ?

I can see where Marketplace might be attractive for some, but it carries 
a bit of baggage with it due to the subscription model that it imposes 
-- even if the subscription charge is $0 as would presumably be the case 
for CentOS.  Perhaps Marketplace has become easier to work with in 
recent years, but I know I've run into issues due to how Marketplaces 
uses product codes and implements restrictions as to what can be done 
with volumes and snapshots (for those who might want to modify the issue 
and create modified AMIs). [3]
