Hi Karanbir,
well, but it is the case exactly, see bind for example:
4.8/os/i386/CentOS/RPMS/bind-9.2.4-30.el4_7.2.i386.rpm, changelog head:

* Tue Feb 10 23:00:00 2009 Adam Tkac <atkac redhat com> 20:9.2.4-30.2
- abort timeout queries to reduce the number of open UDP sockets (#476515)
- handle EMFILE error from accept() gracefully (#476515)
and no bind package in 4.8/updates/.../

and:
centos/4.7/updates/i386/RPMS/bind-9.2.4-30.el4_8.4.i386.rpm, changelog head:
* Thu Jul 30 00:00:00 2009 Tomas Hoger <thoger redhat com> 20:9.2.4-30.4
- security fix for remote DoS (CVE-2009-0696, #514292)

according to el4_8.4 in release tag I'd say that somehow 4.8 packages got to 
4.7 directory...

nik.
