Impossible from a technical point: The mirrorlists which yum uses *HAVE*
to be populated at least with a few hosts before release. And for that
the mirrors have to be open.

It's a bit of "egg and chicken" - we only can announce when we have a
reasonably sane mirrorlist for most countries, but that takes around
three hours or so after "the bit has flipped".
