Are you using the Red Hat supplied version of Apache?  Keep in mind  
that they backport patches from later 2.2 releases and from trunk, but  
their version number stays the same.

Review the source RPM to see what's really going on.  It has its own  
Changes file.

Even if you were to use vanilla 2.2.3, do you have any information  
that the features you need were not up to snuff in that version?

In any case I'd recommend that you set up a test installation and see  
if what you need to work, works.  That way you have your own benchmark.
