I think an additional "Data" repository could be the answer here. Also
one "data" package can serve more Fedora releases. Mirrors can choose
whether or not to mirror it, links can save the space for multiple
releases. On the user side you will see only a new fedora-data.repo file
in yum.repos.s :-)
