One learns something new every day. Lets be clear. You are saying that
yum install --download-only kernel
will, not only download a source kernel but run the equvalent of
rpm -i x.src.rom -> spec file
rpmbuild -bb -> binary rpm
and rpm -i -> install the binary rpm.
All of life is a blur of Republicans and meat!
