That is how it is explained in the documentation
Adding protect= to all repositories 
You MUST add protect=0 to all repos in all .repo files in /etc/yum.repos.d/ 
or any repos that you have in /etc/yum.conf if you want them unprotected, 
otherwise they belong to the protect=1 group. As a general rule add either 
protect=0 or protect=1 to each and every repo.

Well, I'm certainly okay with that behavior, it's safer :-)
