Hmm, I would mark centos-7 as upgrading centos-7.0, maybe mark
centos-7.0 as EOL'ed (as we'd be at centos-7.6 by now), and only
maintain centos-7 from now on.

Yes and no, I think we want to remove the system-id/volume-id bits from
this file, as otherwise what a given centos ISO is going to match is
going to be undeterministic (unless you fixed this recently?)
