You're aware that none of the certifications would hold for "openSLE"
(or whatever the name is going to be), right? Certifications aren't tied
to the source code, they're almost always tied to a specific,
well-defined compilation _plus_ an active support/maintenance
subscription.

I'm working in a big company and out of experience I can tell you that
most third-party software vendors will give support if you run their
software which is probably only certified for RHEL on the
binary-compatible CentOS of the same version number. This might not
meet your definition (and those vendors will probably not state the
official support of CentOS on their web site), but that's how it works
in practice. Of course, you need an active support subscription for that
specific third-party software under consideration - why would you expect
to get support without it.

Cheers,
Th.
