I certainly don't speak for RH, but I'd hope that these are
acceptable, as they appear to be fully within the terms of GPLv3
section 7. Certainly does suggest that standardizing these terms would
have been nice, though.

I forecast packaging MicropolisCore, a free release of the first
SimCity's version (quite rewritten),but when EA has released
the software under GPLv3, they added the additional terms following
(for information, the aim of the release is to propose out-of-box a game
in the OLPC) :
