I completely fail to see why this is.

Is apt unable to look for metadata in a different location than yum ? or
are we unable to generate two sets of metadata, one tht works for apt
and another that works for yum ?

Also, something to keep in mind is that less than 2% of the userbase use
a package manager other than yum to access rpmforge repos ( based on a
15 day log file sample ). Surely the 98% that do use yum should not need
to put up with apt's issues.
