I plan on creating CentOS 6.0 Desktop off-spin, changing only release 
package to add priorities and enable Plus and Extras repositories, and 
then add few selected third party repositories and/or hosting some extra 
packages not available via yum (VirtualBox, Shorewall, newer versions of 
OpenOffice,...). I might even see if CentOS and third party repos could 
create release packages with added Priority value, third party with 
chosen number higher then 1.

I already have something similar but it uses script to backup and delete 
current files in /etc/yum.repos.d and install modified .repo files with 
set priority value for chosen application.
