I thought both had upstream compatibility as the main goal - and both 
seem competent enough that I wouldn't expect many problems in this 
regard.  SL also claims a secondary goal of making site customization 
easy - perhaps Centos as we know it could simply be one of those 
customizations and going forward other variations would be easy.  If the 
people doing the work aren't getting any value out of the brand name, I 
don't see the point of fragmenting the user community for what is 
essentially the same thing.
