I typically disable all 3rd party repo's and pick and choose what I want from them. So if there's certain RPMforge packages I want I simply do:
# yum --enablerepo=rpmforge -y update blah.rpm
This also allows me to list updated packages per repo by enabling what I want and checking against a pre-defined installation list.
Been using this technique for years (before yum plugins were available) and it's worked well, so haven't bothered changing the way I do things.
