I don't think so.

Scientific Linux 6 - yes (alpha 3 seems to be stable)
CentOS 6 - yes ( when will be out )

KVM behaviour on SL 6 is different from F14 . In particular, W7 KVM install
is amazingly fast , even without pre-loading  viostor.sys.
KVM performance for Linux Guests ( + virtio support )  is extremely high
with CPU's like C2D 8500, Q9550 . Gaming ( home use) hardware.

More to the point:  OpenSuSE appears to be the community flavor of SLES,
just as Fedora is the community variant of RHEL.

If I were to reject SLES due to cost in favor of Fedora, presumably I'd
reject RHEL for the same reasons, and it would be silly to ignore
