Sortof.  It was built between 7.2 and 7.3, and diverged from there.  Not 
everything is the same.  Base source versions on 7.2 is not always the 
same in RHAS 2.1 and RHL7.3.  This requires patches be backported and 
people QA the packages and test them in updates-testing.  We get almost 
none of that now.

See reasons above.  Some things are older source versions and need 
backported patches that nobody is willing to do.
