But you can tell people to use RHEL7 instead. Supported does not mean "dont use anything newer/better" :)

A ship of money, and lots of time. And on a continued basis because every time there is a change in the crypto software, it has to get re-certified. And we are 
talking a lot more then just a few thousand dollars. So it is extremely unlikely to change in the next couple of years.
