yum is there, because the architecture behind up2date (vulgo RHN) just
isn't there, as it is *not* free software. The i586 kernel cannot go
into a separate repository, as that won't be usable at install time --
yes, that is a change regarding to the stuff upstream delivers.

It would be against the CentOS goals - look at www.centos.org.

Stuff which *really* differs from upstream -- meaning that it
*overwrites* stuff which comes from upstream -- has to go to centosplus,
if at all.
