In general perhaps, but if a package is available from multiple repos
and the one that yum selects by default is broken wrt other rpms on my
system then partial exclusion is essential. A recent example is x264
which broke nuvexport on my system because the freshrpms version
doesn't play well with something else.

I also think it's a good idea to keep getting newer versions of the
same packages from the same repo as the current one, because I already
have high confidence in the packaging. So all my myth dependencies
come from atrpms and if I notice them coming from anywhere else I
exclude them.
