they are not there, check the official repo, rsyncing without delete flag?

what do you mean by that? Of course, they are to be there. They are part 
of the OS, exactly. You have been using CentOS for a while and upgraded 
several times in the past, have you forgotten in the meantime how 
CentOS/RHEL upgrading works?

these have not been updated, there is no reason to retag them

you are looking for things that don't exist, e.g.
libvirt-0.8.2-15.el5_6.1 is 0.8.2-15.el5.3
And Java isn't part of CentOS anymore, AFAIK.

If you do not like the tagging/naming scheme. I'm pretty confident this is 
taken from upstreamm, you have to complain there.
