You really miss the point... The whole reason of using RHEL instead of
CentOS is Red Hat's support. If you don't need or have their support,
using RHEL is actually *worse* than using CentOS, as you won't have

On the other hand, if you call Red Hat to ask for help to fix an issue
and it turns out they find out you "upgraded" a CentOS into a Red Hat
server, they will certainly refuse to help you (and would be right to
do it).

If you really need Red Hat, you should do a clean install. Period.
Upgrading from any other existing Linux install would be the same as
aiming the shotgun towards your own foot...
