It's not "creative editing", it's quote trimming in a forum which 
provides threaded discussions.  It's the recommended etiquette for this 
forum, and has been for decades.  Context can be readily provided from 
the parent message which is available to everyone who received my 
reply.  But if it makes you happy, I'll expand the quote and ask the 
question again:

Why do you think that?  Are RHEL (and CentOS) point releases backward 
compatible or not?  If you trust point releases to work, why would you 
hesitate to trust a distribution that resembles an upcoming point release?

(And if you don't trust point releases, why would you use the OS at all?)
