Not true. There have been proposals, such as continueing to let a
project's package build-system to fill in the "Vendor" or "Packager" tags
(and not hardcoding them within package spec files). Look at this:

  rpm -qa --qf "%{vendor} : %{n}-%{v}-%{r}.%{arch}\\n" | sort

Additionally, Yum can tell you about installed packages not found
in any of the enabled repositories (yum list extras).
