Page 23 of the VX.1.2 Release Highlights doc indicates that RHEL 6.0 - 6.5 are supported.
I'm not sure where the naming convention originated, it was probably when RHEL 5 64-bit was first supported (as you suggest). Trying to use "intelligent" naming that is future-proof rarely ends well.
I will forward this information to the user.
