I'd rather avoid SL, because the key point of using CentOS instead of SL 
is "CentOS guaranteeing 100% RH compatibility", a feature which doesn't 
apply to SL, AFAICT. Besides this, my personal opinion on SL isn't the best.

Anyway, SL certainly would be a potential emergency-resort in case 
CentOS 6 doesn't manage to "get out bed" in near future.

For now, I'll wait for "Jul 4" and watch for what will happen then.
