Well then there appears to be no reason to not go with a version of my
initial suggestion.

State what CentOS is and what it's sources are.  State that there may be
some minor divergence between the behavior of CantOS and the Red Hat
documentation.  You can explain why if you feel that it's required.

Attribute the documentation to Red Hat.

Provide a link to the original Red Hat documentation as required in
their copyright statement.

By taking these steps we would be exceeding the requirements of the
license in that we are providing the attribution and the link even
though we are not distributing the document, or a modified version of it.

By providing a link to the documentation we would no more be
distributing the documentation than Google would be distributing the
Weather Channel by providing a link to it in their search results.
