Our network consists of aaa.bbb.ccc.0/19.  That's CIDR notation for
8,192 addresses.

IMHO, fully updated purpose-built servers running 4.8 should have more
or less the same vulnerablity profile as 5.5 IFF RH is doing a good
job of backporting security fixes.

I am supported in that statement by my mentor at FedEx but NOT by my
mentor at Internet2.

The open ?s about human error wrt the SRPMs in SL6 could arguably lead
to a different conclusion.

Yes, it will be based on a later release.

We installed openssl-1.0.0c Jan 23 20:30 27 minutes after filing the
original post IIRC.
