It won't be fine for CentOS 5 either if it is not fine for RHEL 5. CentOS 
also rebuilds the source packages from other RHN channels and even if they 
may not be available right now they may be in the future. So the same 
concerns hold true.

That would be interesting indeed. A complete list of binary packages, 
metadata and a list of all the SRPMs (just to verify if they all are on 
the mirrors and have not been mistakenly forgotten).
