I asked the same thing some time ago, but I wasn't able to came with a solution.
I set up a local mirror of updates with mrepo: is a waste of bandwidth (I am 
mirroring tons of apps I don't need, laguage packs and so on), but is the 
"best" solution I found.
At this time I guess we should ask the people that develop yum: does anyone 
know how to get in touch with them?
