I know and understand this, but I expect the outcome to be the same:

Ring 0 == Red Hat
Ring 1 == The Red Hat business/RHEL-irrelevant parts

In other words, on the techicall level I do not see any difference to 
CentOS+RHEL and to Core+Extras

On the political and social level, .... it raises questions going far 
beyond these consideration
