Speaking for our Katello users, I don't know that its required for us to 
do, but might be nice to have.  I think we might want to have the option 
to preserve or not, as alphabetically organized repositories are nice to 
have even when the upstream repository isn't laid out in such a way.

I do seem to remember in the past some desire around kickstarts to 
preserve the structure, but i do not remember the details around it.
