That's missing the point.

While it's perfectly understandable that there's always a certain lag 
between upstream RHEL and CentOS, seven weeks without security updates 
is a serious showstopper for production use.

There's a difference between "use upstream Red Hat if you badly need 
those critical updates" and "don't use CentOS on your production servers".
