I don't think that works; in general doing infrastructure work without
reference to a user experience is going to result in a big mismatch
between the desired UI and what's available.

In this particular case it seems to me we want it to be a dynamic
property; e.g. if I start an update while on my mobile broadband card,
suspend in the middle of downloading, go to an office where I have a
local mirror, well ideally I'd be able to check a box in the UI to
toggle it (if it really mattered), or even better the system would use
some heuristics.

But obviously, you can't disable delta compression by doing a "yum
remove" in the middle of your download...
