*Personally*, I would say no. I would certainly be starting to use it in 
the lab and non-critical roles, but I will be waiting until ~7.2 before 
I consider using it in production.

This is mainly based on the sheer amount of change that happened in EL7. 
It's going to take time for bugs to get squashed and for users to get 
used to the changes.
