I think that it would be nice to have automatic rebuild of F6 for the packages
that are not in EPEL nor RHEL (in another repo, of course). That way 
the packages that change too often to be in EPEL and that don't have a 
maintainer close enough to upstream to know about what backport should 
be done could still be available. For a personnal example (always the
same ;-) there is libdap. It works well with http://centos.karan.org/.
There should then be a long term solution to extend this when F6 is
dropped, but it would be in years, so we'll be able to see if such a
repo is really necessary.
