I forgot CR explanation. CR repository is means to update gradually to 
next point release because building upstream's (RH) packages with binary 
compatibility became very difficult. So to avoid holding back numerous 
"easy to build" packages that enhance and stabilize system, not to 
mention security fixes, CentOS dev's adopted CR repository.

Note that RHEL does not have CR repo, it is specific to it's clones 
(CentOS, SL).

There is discussion in process, to create dual options,
1. with CR repo enabled by default, and
2. Separate frozen poin releases (6.0 with all updates UNTIL 6.1 was 
released, etc.)
