Personally I would rather wait even longer if that meant signed
packages. Of course it would not be an ideal solution, but I think the
security risk of installing unsigned packages is much worse than the
inconvenience of waiting.
Also this would only be a big problem at release time, for ordinary
updates the delay should not be that bad.

If disk space on mirrors is a problem you could separate the debuginfo
into one directory per release, and move older ones to vault.centos.org.
