That is what I was leaning towards when I was looking at doing an
offline mode, like the staged pungi steps in olpc-xs-builder[1]. Use
yumdownloader --resolve to populate and create a single yum repo for use
in the image.

You could fake this by reusing the cache, run createrepo against the
cache directory holding the cache and use a single file:/// yum repo
statement in the ini file, commenting out the online repos. Now that OOB
caches activities just have to stop cleaning out the temp directory
between runs. Think I brought that up when --cacheonly was introduced.
