That isn't going to work very well. Without the repo metadata yum isn't
going to work and when some new dependencies are introduced your rpm
upgrades are going to fail.

It's really going to be easier to just get a copy of the whole repositories
for the architectures you need. The everything repository doesn't change
so you only need to get that one once.
