/etc/centos-release-upstream is not useful when looking at an iso name.

With 7.0 the iso name was CentOS-7.0-1406-x86_64-DVD.iso. With 7.1 the
iso name is CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1503-01.iso. Since you dropped the minor
version in the iso name and assuming that you are not going to put it
back in the future, going forward I will need a chart to figure out what
upstream version an iso corresponds to.

How is that better?
