You are correct.  Yum is guessing and guessing is prone to error.  But,
since we are prone to error, we're going to error on the safe side, and
go after the enabled repos, rather than everything.  This is the safer
option.  This is the way it works.

Absolutely nobody is stopping you from submitting patches for the
documentations.  Seth has said nothing wrt to this.  Instead of
discussing this indefinitely, do something productive?
