You don't need a Red Hat subscription to get any SRPMs from RHEL. The GPL requires that they provide them for free. I believe that applies even th RHWAS, since that's still based on GPL'ed Linux code. 

You can get RHEL RPMs here

Jim, I don't know if this discussion has been taken off-list, but why don't you just get this service (more specifically the Application Stack) from Redhat?  As I understand it, all CentOS wants is someone with a RedHat subscription to provide to them the SRPMS which have a distributable license.  The RedHat subscription for the application stack looks to be
$1999 for one year -
