CentOS is designed to be a rebuild of the RHEL source code.  That is
what millions of users want.

We purposely ONLY include functionality that is in RHEL.  That is what
CentOS is.

If you want other functionality .. it is available via EPEL and other
3rd Party Repos and CentOS Special interest groups.  This give you the
ability to add things, while maintaining CentOS what it is designed to
be .. a rebuild of RHEL with exactly that source code's functionality.
