Were did you read any reference on his naming scheme above to deduce
your statements?

To see it soberly: The strategical question is whether to have
multiple repos or only one.

People with their own repo tend not to prefer solutions allowing
repository mixing. This was and is out of Warren's scope and is fine
that way, and is is fine that he explicitly states so. It is also fine
to believe otherwise.

But you cannot bring the two concepts together.
