I have a few thoughts about this, but first a reminder: this weird quasi system-release package is not a long term solution. Eventually CentOS Stream will need to grow its own system-release package. What we have right now (with duplicated repos) was a quick solution to get CentOS Stream released at the same time as CentOS Linux 8.0

We're open to discussion, and expect this to evolve.
