How about just tell them to use yum-priorities?  Then, the server guys
do not get it and the client guys do.

You can also have another repo that is Client-only ... and the only
thing that goes there are deps that do not exist in rhel-server???

You are also going to have things that are in 5 and not 4 (and vice versa).

You will need to handle all these somehow.
