No, because CentOS will not officially endorse anything that it does not 
build (and sign) itself.

You are talking about a community 3rd party repo. Rather than reinvent 
the wheel, why don't you just contribute (and maintain) your packages in 
an existing repository. RPMforge would be a good choice and I'm sure 
would welcome your contribution.

What packages did you have in mind? Are you sure they don't exist 
somewhere already?
