As the instructions are written your system will continue to function 
properly, however, up2date will still use WBEL repos while yum will use 
CentOS repos.

Mixing packages among EL3 real or clone isn't really a big problem I 
have machines that started out as RHEL 3 ES --> WhiteBox --> CentOS 3.1 
--> CentOS 3.3 --> CentOS 3.4.  That machine reported RH, WB, and c0 
packages before it get whipped out to test Fresh 3.4 installs.
