In this case I see no problems with the approach that you have  
suggested. Who wants to use them installs and activates manually the 
repo. Once the packages are moved to the stable tree the repo will be 
empty and behave just like the current empty ones . win-win situation

Or that. But given that the package list changes per release ( since RH 
introduces new packages during the first half of the distro cycle ) a 
blacklist might be easier to maintain. Especially as I do not [fore]see 
many packages to be " forbidden ". To be reanalyzed when time comes ?
