Where do you see the advantages of this approach? The only one I see, is that 
it is easier (i.e. it is faster and need less network traffic, unless you 
already have a complete up-to-date cvs tree) to collect all regular 
expressions. But the disadvantages are, that it is much easier to create a 
conflict (at least there is a warning in the comps howto, that one should 
update before and after one edited the file, but I do not know, whether or 
not CVS detects conflicts), every maintainer needs to monitor this file to 
make sure, that the regular expressions of his packages are not (accidently)
