Default Effecting CentOS change

CentOS has a clear mission. It's the first paragraph on the centos.org
home page:

CentOS is an Enterprise-class Linux Distribution derived from
sources freely provided to the public by a prominent North American
Enterprise Linux vendor. CentOS conforms fully with the upstream
vendors redistribution policy and aims to be 100% binary compatible.
(CentOS mainly changes packages to remove upstream vendor branding
and artwork.) CentOS is free.

Discussions about the packages and utilities that are or aren't
included in CentOS (the recent discussion of system-config-bind comes
to mind, but it's not the only example) should re-read the CentOS
mission.

Anyone wanting change in that regard should, imo, purchase a license
from the prominent North American Enterprise Linux vendor and provide
feedback as a paying customer. Said vendor may or may not heed those
suggestions, but that is the only effective way to change the CentOS
utility/package list.

Honestly, we could all -- every single last one of us -- agree that
$PACKAGE belongs in the core CentOS distribution, but until
$LARGE_VENDOR agrees, we're just shouting in a vacuum.
