I am not sure this is the accurate information.
It was true regarding v1 but it most likely will be different with v2.
I do not think the information you are commenting on is even shaped
internally as the official sales of IPA will start only with 6.2. IPA is
in tech preview in 6.1.
The access to replication bits is in fact needed via Red Hat contact.

I am really not sure what you are trying to say with this post?
"IPA is bad, do not use it?"

It seems that supporting something requires knowledge and right people.
It might be very well possible that Red Hat would not be able to ramp up
the right support resources for all geographies day 1. It is the
question of time and demand. 

FreeIPA - community release is available and supported using the
standard "best effort" model across the globe.
It is unclear what other expectations are not met.
