Does this really give any advantages over:

rpm -i http://my.new.repo.com/repo-blah.noarch.rpm

Once you try to go the "one repo" approach you have to take politics into
consideration.  Most of those repos will never go on an "official" list
from Fedora (because of the legal concerns).  And there are already
packaging conflicts with just the three you listed.
