Git is very flexible in this aspect. You can have one local repo with
many remotes and vice versa - one remote repo with multiple per-SCL
local repos. You can rename local branches too according to your needs.

One I can think of is that you can easily guess Koji build target from
branch name.

I personally slightly prefer A (maybe just because I'm used to it), but
I think that both approaches are good, as long as spec files are named
as they are now. It's important to keep the same names across different
repos for easier merging.
