SL is maintained for Scientists mostly in Fermi Labs and CERN, and it 
has additional Scientific applications/packages.

They are also government funded project, and as such must follow some 
strict rules. Those are main reasons. There are smaller ones, but even 
those are enough not to think in the direction of joining projects.

I have setup repository for desktop use of CentOS where I have put many 
packages (~300 compiled and 45 downloaded from non-repo locations) and 
in process of solving repo conflicts so major third-part repositories 
can be the basis for nicely formulated Desktop distro. When I finally 
have enough time I will finish it and offer entire package to public. I 
hope it will be soon.
