It can be.

I would say the above, as it matches what you find in the root of the
install DVD (packages, GPG keys, other bits used while installing).

I would say not, as it's only the RPMs, without the install routine
scripts, etc.  I'd say the message about "where the installation files
reside" is a clue, it doesn't say just "where the RPMs are".

Perhaps there should be a README in the right directory, saying that
*this* *directory* is where network installs are started from.

That might depends on the mirror.  The one I tried looked like the
install DVD, albeit with a lot more RPMs in one of the sub-directories.
