That appears to rule out elrepo and IUS ever being allowed to get into
extras which seems like a change of policy from before when it was:
"come up with some criteria by which we can make impartial decisions".
In both cases, they do not target CentOS alone, they exist to serve the
entire EL community. Making them build in CBS would then rule out their
repos being used on RHEL and/or SL. I don't think this is a good idea
