Not strictly true. The centosplus and extras yum repos include a more
full-featured kernel, and a few other bits and pieces
They're not enabled by default because once you go that route,
you're breaking strict redhat correspondence.
Two other repos most centos users hit are
dag.wieers / freshrpms /etc. (now called "rpmforge" *) and jpackage.
