Because then it will be part of the webapps repository rather than be its  
own repository. That will also screw up syncing with the repositories  
elsewhere.

Why would that not scale? We do not have that many specifications and they  
all fit within the same directory on TR/ too. That will also avoid having  
to merge each time for specifications you never touch, etc. Alternatively  
we could just keep the editor's draft local and push out a copy or so  
every now and then to w3.org space, but that seems less nice.
