It also requires us to use special metadata switches to create drpms and
metadata to use yum-presto.  Which we have not yet done or decided to do

That adds a bunch of files to the mirrors, and while we were doing a
release that takes several days to sync to the external mirrors, we did
not want to add the extra packages for this feature.

We may still do drpms if enough people use them and ask for it.
