random centos6.4 system I looked at doesn't even have a directory 
/usr/share/virt-who, so this must be part of some optional package not 
required for centos to load and operate....

indeed, yum provides says...
virt-who-0.8-5.el6.centos.noarch : Agent for reporting virtual guest IDs 
to subscription-manager

another centos 6.4 server, on which I'm doing some KVM tests and uses 
libvirt and stuff, doesn't have virt-who either.

'rhsm' 'subscription manager', thats sounds like RHEL stuff tied into 
their licensing scheme ??
