Personally I disagree that this is a problem.  I don't consider the
CellServDB to be a config file, per se, and I _want_ RPM to update the
file automatically on my machines.

Consider this an incentive for cells to publish their CellServDB
information, either in DNS via AFSDB records, of in the
grand.central.org CellServDB.  :-)
