I'd like to bump this.  I get wanting to not build them by default.  It's still valid and useful content though and I think makes sense to have available as an advanced off-by-default developer-enabled feature.  So I did just that: https://github.com/ComplianceAsCode/content/pull/4923 .  Consequently the PR was promptly closed within about 20m by one of the maintainers with nothing more than a "Nope, not gonna do that", which, tbh, seemed like a fairly hostile way to interact with contributors.  No discussion or explanation, just a sprinkling of nist references that don't actually have to do with the specific issue.  The content generation used the enable_derivatives script which already peppers the XCCDF with applicable warnings.

Honestly we would probably use RHEL for our servers if we could afford it, simply because it would be one less thing to worry about, but for a small company that nevertheless has lots of servers, the cost, or at least what we were quoted, was prohibitive. Actually even using CentOS required a cultural adjustment. Before that we built the OS ourselves from source code.
