I do not think there is much to be worried for now. Most/all security 
patches will come out fairly fast now that CR repo is in place.

If need be, there can always be another repo that will be reserved for 
fast fixes that are not compatible with RHEL, like package with 
important fix that is not exactly compatible, but does the job same as 
upstream package. This would be only for unresolved packages with 
important fix, and only as long as complete fix is not completed.
