I would be in favour of (1), since (3) would mean "We don't want to
add a fourth repo to Mageia so we put it aside", but this is not
really the Mageia philosophy. The purpose of having non-free and
tainted is that the Mageia project is self-sufficient and our users
don't have to rely on 3rd party repositories.
