nginx-release-centos from seperate repo to main nginx repo

Hi,

I just installed nginx on my system using the rpm located at:
http://nginx.org/packages/centos/7/noarch/RPMS/nginx-release-centos-7-0.el7.ngx.noarch.rpm

This rpm installs the main nginx repository for my system, but i noticed there is no 'nginx-release-centos' rpm in the main repository.

Why is the 'nginx-release-centos' rpm located in a different repository?
Wouldn't it be more convenient to either have the release rpm in the main repository, or to have the release rpm include both repositories?

When the repository URL might change in the future an updated release rpm package does not inform the currently installed base.
And placing a 2nd release-rpm in the main repository requires two files and has a higher risk of split brain.

Regards,
Peter
