Yes, keep status que and do not remove it from CentOS 6 is definitely
valid option.

is what I have read.

I know that you are a fan of multiple repos having different versions
of packages (and may use priorities plugin). Me not.

An inclusion would also lead to such an situation, and there are no
real benifits.
