I don't see why we couldn't, or shouldn't modify it, though, so logn as
we first make sure to comply with the rest of the license provisions, ie
remove RedHat trademarks, give appropriate attribution and link to the
original docs, then we can go ahead and modify it wiki-style so that it
reflects the differences in CentOS.
