Default "Continious Repo" vs. 'normal' Centos-Base/Updates questions

I have some questions about the "Continious Repo".

Does the "Continious Repo" replace the Centos-Base/Updates repo?

Is the "Continious Repo" in a standard place on the CentOS mirrors? Ie.
can I just add another line to my rsync script to get this repo? It is
not possible for me to just update directly off the net (I have a slow
and unreliable network connection)

If I cannot rsync from a secondary mirror, is it possible / allowed to
rsync from mirror.centos.org? If so, what is the proper rsync URL?

No. See http://lists.centos.org/pipermail/centos-announce/2011-August/017689.html
. The CR repo is just a way to get faster access to updates that are
the next point release.

Seems to be at least on some mirrors:

http://centos.arcticnetwork.ca/5/cr/
http://www.gtlib.gatech.edu/pub/centos/5/cr/
Etc.

Point releases land in the 'Base' repo. *Between* point releases there
would be updates in the Updates repo. That seems to have stopped for
CentOS 5. That is what I mean.

Yes, I just tried it on the mirror I sync with and it appears to work.

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.

According to the September 7th tweet on Karanbir's Twitter page[1],
CentOS 5.7 should be out in the next 2 to 3 days! Yea!
