That's really my question. Is there any particular reason why not all Red Hat advisories (RHEA, RHBA and RHSA) have a CentOS counterpart? Is this due to time constraints, demand, or some other legal reason?

Can you expand on that? CentOS does not announce RHBAs (Bugfix updates) for at least CentOS 4.
