Oli...perhaps instead of taking out your anger and frustration on the 
CentOS packagers, you might wish to vent at the Upstream...because, when 
all is said and done, CentOS is a repackaged RHEL. Whatever the 
requirements are for the upstream are the requirements for CentOS. 
Whatever the installer looks for in RHEL is going to be the same thing 
that the installer looks for in CentOS.

I will leave you with this minor piece of wisdome, which I've seen 
repeated in this list many times: if you don't agree with the 
requirements or feel that there's a bug in the installer, you are more 
than welcome to file a bug report with the upstream.
