Yes, Seth mentioned that. And that's probably the cleanest and most 
flexible overall solution. This feature acts as a intermediate step 
until rpm 4.4 becomes commmonplace.

As I mentioned I think it may also be possible to do auto HKP from 
within yum for systems without rpm 4.4. Not sure if its worth the effort
