My opinion is that the current behaviour is still correct because it
allows us to pick the latest dependencies as well. So maybe a second
option to trigger the behaviour would be great.

We could also imagine to have a --dependencies-from-repo=orig,epel
option which would default to orig (the repo where you copy the rpms
from) but I am diverting :)
