That is more complicated to set up and maintain. For example, you have
to list your base repositories in all config files (so dependencies can
be satisfied), so now you have to have the same configuration data in
multiple files, and that duplication is never a good thing.
I have multiple repositories listed, but sometimes I just want to get an
"official" Fedora Core update; the only current way is multiple config
files, which is irritating.
