"The simple fact is: RH let themselves be forced to operate based on the whims of a closed-source vendor. This is an extremely bad situation."
My understanding is that at least with Nvidia drivers Redhat will refuse to support driver issues with that thing running. It's been a source of quite a few nasty bugs in the past.
For other stuff.. like apps that run on Redhat. Ya certification of propriatory apps is one of their major selling points so they would have to conform to closed source vendors they work with.
