Case in point.  Upstream repository completely goes away, or goes
offline for a long period of time.  I disable the repo in my configs,
but from time to time I still need access to the rpms and info that is
sitting in the cache dir.  (do a cache only operation using this repo
and others).  I don't want yum removing this out from under me,
especially if I have the repo disabled.

The question isn't whether or not the cache is disposable, the question
is if I am ready for yum to dispose of it in a non intuitive way.  I
disabled a repo, I don't want to see any operations involved with
disabling this repo.  Doing operations in regard to this repo when it is
disabled seems very counterintuitive to me.  Thus when I do a clear all,
I want all cleared from enabled repos.  Period.
