Comment # 12 on bug 492261 from
The problem with this is, that zypper does not know whether this is a minor or
major important repo to you. 

If a repo is disabled/skipped, packages previously installed from this repo are
considered as 'orphanded'. Orphanded packages involved in any dependency issue
may be silently deleted by the resolver. As zypper can't decide whether this
would be OK for you, we don't offer such an option.

For your usecase we had to introduce a new repo property which allows you to
tag a repo as 'minor important'. Zypper may then ignore the refresh error and
continue using the old (unrefreshed) data. 

This way one could wait for a repo to become available again rather than
permanently disabling it.
