why? That's like saying - in order to work efficiently it's best if
firefox cache every page you've ever been to and all of those pages
you've NOT been to, too.

If a source repo is not enabled then it's not enabled. The only thing
marking them as source would do is tell yumdownloader which repos to
enable if someone passed --source to it.
