Sometimes yes, sometimes no.
Someone mailed me offlist, it depends what mirror of 
isoredirect.centos.org you hit - if dns resolves:
" you get the 404 but when it's resolving to things work fine"

The footer of the resulting webpage gives:
Layered Technologies
for the good mirror.

When crawling up the path of the bad mirror you end with
for the bad mirror.
