CentOS is not commercially supported. Period. If the recent re-discoverer of the perl bug (Vipul Ved Prakash) had been using RHEL (and hence had a support contract) he may have had a more direct recourse to getting it fixed, notwithstanding Red Hat's (current) low priority on the bug. Instead of moaning about it on his blog, he would have had the right to raise a stink with Red Hat directly.
