It's already possible, the chromium repo just isn't set up this way
(it's a bit of work). See the rpmfusion repo setup process for an
example. It's basically just an RPM which contains the repo definitions;
you double-click the RPM, PackageKit pops up and installs it, and hey
presto, you have a new repo.
