In short: You are preach to the choir here.

In times before Kolab Systems we already talked about this a bit and
when we talked with Christoph about our wishes for Kolab 3000
(including pre-releases like 2.3 or 3.0)), this was a very important
topic for us. In fact, it seems to have been too important to be
mentioned on this list (maybe because it is clear that this is
wanted), at least I can't find a pointer.

Of course there are pitfalls in having multiple repositories, e.g.
moving files from one component to another later if the original
decision shows to be wrong, but there clearly are many benefits.
