One of the strengths and attractiveness of CentOS always was that CentOS strived to be 100% compatible to what Red Hat shipped. Obviously 100% compatibility was not possible before, but now it can be. Yet that goal seems to have disappeared.A likely explanation is that core (with its own build system) is the part that is 100% binary compatible with RHEL, while the different SIGs, by definition, are not, as they build on top of CentOS and in some cases even replace core components such as the kernel (e.g. for Xen support)
