Yes, that's because the CBS is is not meant to be for production use,
but only for building and testing.  This is for two reasons:

1. The CBS itself is not mirrored, nor provisioned for massive use
2. The binaries in the CBS are not signed, and thus are risky to use
in a production environment due to the ease with which one could
perform a man-in-the-middle attack

After they've been in -testing for a week, they'll be signed and
pushed to the main c6 xen4centos repos (which are enabled by default).
