If I understand this correctly that CR will be used again once upstream releases 5.8, then I would like to be able to leave centos-release-cr as part of my kickstart so it is already configured for the next batch of CR updates.

The centos-cr repository should only be unsed during transition phase 
from one minor to another. The package will be removed once the next 
minor is release, and re-appear on next transition. (hope I said it 
right, Karan :))

So the cr release package is not meant to be included in kickstart by 
default.
