The current updates system is getting better each release, but I think

Once the repositories are presto enabled, an updates-archive with all the delta rpms would not take as much space as a full rpm repository but provide the same functionality.

If in some way a mirror can regenerate a full, original RPM from all delta RPMs, so that Jigdo can use it as a slice, a combination of the two would be possible.

Without that ability, all Jigdo recognizes is full RPMs on the ISO image (slices), against no (zero) matches in the updates-archive/ folder (all partial slices).
