But that's not your decision to make - it's a decision for the repo
themselves how they configure their repo in their config file.
The way for a distro to have "control" is not to install the
repo-release package by default to start with, just have it present in
the repos if that's what people want.
A sensible criteria for including any repo might be that if it replaces
packages from the distro then it should be disabled (enabled=0) by
default, but it's not a setting for you (the distro) to change.
