It is much easier to populate 6.x and then just change symlink. In your 
suggestion, they would have to move all files from 6 to 6.x, then 
populate 6 with new files. during that last period, we would not be able 
to use yum.

I only sync 6 , not 6.x. There is no need if you anly want latest. 6 
anyway points to latest 6.x, I do not see what your problem can bee.

Actually, I use mrepo and ISO files for base repo, and rsync only 
updates, and other repo's.
