yes, local edits will mean that the best we can do is have the file be 
moved to .rpmsave - but that would in turn cause the .repo to get disabled.

in either way, once 5.7/os and 5.7/updates are in place, and the /5/ 
link moves from 5.6 -> 5.7, the only packages in CR would be the 
centos-release rpm from 5.7. The other packages will be moved. If we 
decide to go down the workflow mentioned above in this thread.
