I totaly agree. It's simpler for CentOS to administrer ONE single
repository, and easier for all of us have one repository to deal with. 
Most of us have enough disk space for the DVD isos anyway. Those who 
don't, can use a exclude pattern - which can be documentet on the 
CentOS mirroring howto page:


It more KISS and most Linux distributions do this, so why can't
