Pretty sure all the data you'd want for RHEL is already published at
Red Hat/security/data/metrics. And on a client machine a significant amount of that data is available to yum/yum-security so you can do "yum update-minimal --security" etc.
Of course that doesn't tell you what the window is for RHEL => CentOS, but that's been very small (the 5.3 update was/is the only real mark against them time wise, and that was just bugfixes).
And it's hard to compare that to Ubuntu etc. as they don't publish anything but PR statements saying they are much better than everyone else.
