Precisely what I had in mind.  Strictly CentOS packages, except for 
things like those in the [livecd] repo that are required to build it.

OTOH, there might still be an audience for "plus" version[s] with things 
like iwl3945-firmware or [elrepo] wireless drivers, [rpmforge] 
multimedia, etc.  Such extended versions would obviously (to me) not be 
available through CentOS channels, but might be pointed to from the Wiki 
in the same way 3rd party repos are, if somebody else was interested in 
hosting them.
