Do we know exactly what the problem is?  That is, why does yum do 
something different after a 'yum clean all'?  Shouldn't it be trying all 
the mirrors anyway if it fails to get a file for any reason?  Otherwise, 
what's the point of having the list that generally screws up caching?

I don't think the answer is to expect the repos to be perfect but rather 
to make the clients recover without intervention (and without killing 
the good repos too...).
