Typical corporate jargon really. for the typical corporate bobblehead. Not that Red Hat's support hasn't been sterling every time I've dealt with them... just for your average enthusiast user it'd be easier to say "Nothing to see here, move along" till CentOS 6 hits

I'd think twice before putting production machines on CentOS.
E.g. RHEL 5.5 was released on the 30/3 while CentOS 5.5 was released on the 14/5 - a month and a half. As far as I remember, CentOS 3.7 took even longer.

No, I'm no suggesting that CentOS is bad, quite on the contrary, I use it all the time for staging purposes.
I am suggesting that if you're running anything mission critical, and unless you have the man power to port RHEL fixes yourself, consider using RHEL and not CentOS.
The price of RHEL pales in comparison to unscheduled down time.
