A more direct question: what is the easiest way for me to pull the
latest RHEL-5 stable source as an RPM and its dependencies and sources,
if I'm not on a RHEL-5 host?
Shortest answer: http://lists.baseurl.org/mailman/listinfo/yum
Shorter answer: Yum will attempt to obtain files from whatever
repository you tell it to use. If you want to download files from an
RHEL 5 repo, all you you need to do is configure said repo and tell Yum
to use it.
As an addendum, you might be particularly interested in "yumdownloader",
which is a tool for downloading packages (including source RPMs) without
actually installing them.
