Because once upstream releases the point release all updates are
against the new point release. CR is a temporary way of getting the
next point release out before the ISOs are finished.. As the
announcement states, when CentOS 5.7 is released, the CR repo will be
emptied, because all those packages will be part of CentOS 5.7.
