I published the necessary hooks to do so two years on the yum 
mailing list, and sell services based on this already.  I know 
of another list member who does this as well.

The include functionality for remote yum.conf entries was a 
result of some needs I had in this area, which seth kindly 
added; I also use variants of that code at the 
anaconda/kickstart install time for new host sccessionsing, 
and rule based (database driven) config customization
