Yeah, pretty much.  At least you have the ability to have some input 
upstream, unlike with Windows.

Once it is in RHEL, it is simply *going* to be in CentOS, full stop.  If 
you don't want it in CentOS, then it needs to be yelled about when it 
appears in Fedora.  Yes, this is work.  But many are already doing this 
work; it is those people whose voices are being heard; it is also some 
of those people that are making dynamic networking happen (which is 
useful for more than just laptops).

If you want your voice to be heard, you have to use your voice in the 
venue where changes can happen.  Once it is in a particular major 
version of CentOS, it is simply not going away (unless RHEL removes it).
