I am working on a way to do that now.  Expect the announcements soon.

The issue is, I have no way to have an index number.  I can't use the
next one or it will step on the next upstream update.  We are figuring
out how we can do this and still make it work with our upcoming
yum-security release too.

This is something that we do very infrequently, but now that we are also
going to do yum-security, it is something we need to do correctly.

I would point out that Red Hat only announces security updates on their
list, not BA's or EA's, and no one seems to have a problem with that :)
