The point is that it's required for some dependency in that repo, and 
the other thing you asked about was not required.

We are not trying to replace DAG or EPEL in centosplus or centos-extras 
... so the only things that are in there are things that are absolutely 
required for repo closure if the repo itself.

In this particular case:

[root at builder4 ~]# repoquery --repoid=centosplus --repoid=extras 
--repoid=base --repoid=updates --whatrequires  "php-pear(MDB2)"


So, we needed php-pear-MDB2 to be able to use php-pear-Log ... and that 
is required by 2 other packages in the Plus repo, so that is why its there.
