After initial install, a GA+updates repo would cause consumption of more
bandwidth, as the repodata would change on a nearly daily basis causing
rather large repodata files to be downloaded over and over and over
again.  Instead what we have now is a static GA repo that is downloaded
usually once, and a much much much smaller updates repo that is
downloaded more frequently, but since it is much smaller the impact is
much lower.
