A directory populated with symlinks to all rpms from loop-mounted
isos should do.  You can run createrepo on that if needed.  If you
can mount that over NFS then yum will handle it as in your yum
config "baseurl=file:///...." is fine even if such location is really
NFS mounted.

There are possibly some refinements to that but this is the general
idea.  Most likely you want a tree which includes all these
mountpoints, a directory with symlinks and 'nohide' in exports
or you will have quite a few things to mount in right places
and order.  I did not try that but it should work; maybe after
a tweak or two. :-)
