Today's toy and test deployments are tomorrow's high-volume ones.  It's 
pretty clear that anyone who cares about performance wants something 
newer.  But that's a secondary concern behind security and easy of 
management for some installations, and some of those think that using 
the RHEL packages is the best way to achieve those goals.  I'd hate for 
people who are considering proof-of-concept projects that tinker using 
the version that comes with the OS to get a bad feeling about that 
version by seeing it EOL'd earlier than it has to.  That ship has 
clearly sailed for RHEL4 and it's 7.4 already--nobody considers the 
packages that come with it reasonable to start a new project with 
anymore--but I don't think it has for RHEL5/8.1 yet, based on what I've 
been seeing over the last year in the field.
