I think the "invite only" thing is BS, as realest pointed out. There are ways around it and I'm sure if you called up and had a good track record (and spending record) with Amex they would "invite" you to the Centurion, assuming you spend the 250k.
At the end of the day they shouldn't care if someone is or isn't spending on the card after they get it. They are still paying a $2,500 annual fee which ends up being even more profitable for American Express if the customer isn't bothering to use the services associated with the card.
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.
