It sounds to me like "your big beef" is that you can't run the CentOS
distribution the way *you* want it run. Whether you agree or not,
doesn't change the fact that CentOS *is* enterprise ready.-- and many
enterprises use it. The only time there are significant delays in
patches is when the CentOS team is rebuilding a point release. Sure
that's far from perfect, but it's something those who use CentOS have
learned to work around. Some of them use Red Hat Enterprise Linux on
their critical servers. There are other options, Oracle, Red Hat or
Scientific Linux.

As for rebuilding, why would you want to rebuild CentOS? Why not do
what CentOS does and get the sources directly from Red Hat and rebuild
that? Obviously you must think there is still some value in the CentOS
