Whoa, Mark.  Man, you must be tired.  The fact that your machine with the 290 driver only sees the kmod-nvidia for 295 and does not see nvidia-x11-drv is a big clue.

You might want to double check the includepkgs= line on the machine you originally posted about (not this latest machine), and make sure that it isn't:
includepkgs=nvidia-x11-drv

I can duplicate this behavior very easily, and can duplicate the reverse behavior as well, by manipulating the includepkgs= line.  Here's an example run, from a RHEL 6.3 machine (same would apply to CentOS, just with a few differences in the yum output dealing with the RHN repos....):

First, I edit the elrepo.repo file:

[root@www ~]# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/elrepo.repo
[root@www ~]# grep includepkgs /etc/yum.repos.d/elrepo.repo
includepkgs=kmod-nvidia
[root@www ~]#

Ok, only kmod-nvidia.....

[root@www ~]# yum --enablerepo=elrepo list \*nvidia\*

kmod-nvidia.i686                      295.59-1.el6.elrepo                       elrepo
[root@www ~]#

Which is exactly what I told it to do with the includepkgs directive, and duplicates what you posted above (re-read your post carefully to see that I'm not spinning you a line, here).  Point of fact is that you can't just install the kmod without the X11 driver, as we'll see in a few command sequences below....

[root@www ~]# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/elrepo.repo
[root@www ~]# grep includepkgs /etc/yum.repos.d/elrepo.repo
#includepkgs=kmod-nvidia
[root@www ~]#

Commented it out to double check.....

[root@www ~]#

They're all there.....

[root@www ~]# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/elrepo.repo
[root@www ~]# grep includepkgs /etc/yum.repos.d/elrepo.repo
includepkgs=nvidia-x11-drv
[root@www ~]#

Now just nvidia-x11-drv.....

[root@www ~]#

Which duplicates your original result that does not show the kmod.

[root@www ~]# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/elrepo.repo
[root@www ~]# grep includepkgs /etc/yum.repos.d/elrepo.repo
includepkgs=nvidia-x11-drv kmod-nvidia
[root@www ~]#

Ok, now this is what you really want.....

[root@www ~]# 

Ok, so can I install just the kmod and nothing else?  Let's see.....

[root@www ~]# vi /etc/yum.repos.d/elrepo.repo
[root@www ~]# grep includepkgs /etc/yum.repos.d/elrepo.repo

Nope, so I go back to the includepkgs= line with both.....

Works fine.

The includpkgs= line has to include all dependencies, as it really does do what the man page says it does.  Try it without the includepkgs= line, or with it commented out, and see if you get different results.
