We are working out Stream issues right now .. but no, it is not
necessary to have all the repos active.  You only have to have one set
of Base, Appstream, and Extras enabled (CentOS Stream or CentOS Linux).

Stream standup is very much a work in progress at this point , but it is
what i am using as my personal workstation (for whatever that is worth).

You SHOULD be able to have both sets enabled though .. and will be able
to once we have all the issues solved .. but i don't have them both
enabled on my workstation right now, just CentOS Stream.
