Seth is right, almost noone leaves these config files unmodified :)

But how about paving the path at the very birth of a release by having
the fedoralegacy entries added at the very beginning of the life cycle
of FC<N> pointing to an empty folder?  People will add repos and so on,
and the legacy pointer will wait for fedoralegacy to populate the
matching folder at EOL time, e.g.

# The following repo will be populated when Fedora Core 2 reaches EOL,
# which will be approximately in <compute EOL date>
# see fedoralegacy.org for details.
name=Fedora Core $releasever legacy updates

(and fedoralegacy will have free monitoring/statistics of Fedora
deployment ;)
