Minor clarification, and mostly for my own understanding.  Users are not
directly given the chance to enable/disable repositories on upgrade.
The set of enabled repositories is determined by the installation method
chosen and whatever the fedora-release package defines.

If you are upgrading using a DVD, you will get *only* the DVD package
repo.  If you are upgrading using a network-based repository, you will
get *only* the packages available on the network repository.  If you do
not specify an installation method (no 'askmethod' or repo/method=), you
get whatever repositories are defined by the fedora-release package.
This typically means 'stable' and 'updates' are enabled.  To many
variables!  :)
