Sure.  Just removing the discontiguity of having to mess with the repo
list will cause many future threads that would have been on fedora-list
to wink out of existence.

The more that is done to make Legacy a purely internal action not
readily discernable (I am sorry about suggesting this reduction in
profile) the less Fedora will look like an upgrade treadmill and the
more it will look like a project issuing basically immortal releases,
this 6 month drumbeat will be only of interest to people looking to
upgrade by choice.
