What about the fact that we've always had a single merged distro layout
for 2.1/3/4/5 ? There is a fairly consistent user experience and user
expectation built around that as well, right ?
Also, consider that having so many more isos and so many more repo's
will also drastically increase the disk space requirements on mirrors.
We could get around that to some extent using hardlinks between the
repo's but the ISOS will need their own space.

Maybe this can happen - have multiple install media with the same repo
on mirror.centos.org; what are the implications arising from this ?

>>> CentOS 6 Workstation (about 4 GB)

There are also the storage products, the computenode etc. Given that we
have no support model, and it makes little sense to replicate pkgs for
isos and base repo's I dont really see why we would want all that overhead.
