     I wound´t mind it this repos came installed but disabled buy 
default,  I dont know, but it seems that everybody ends up installing 
some of them anyway. But, if they came disabled, the vanilla CentOS 
environment would not be affected without user intervention.
     CentOS would remain CentOS the same it is today.
