I admit it might be handy to have separate repositories. However,  I share some of the concerns related to the splitting of the repository. I do not know if the advantages balance the efforts,  as  I do not understand how demanding and problematic the repository splitting might turn out.

Perhaps, the only way to mitigate the concerns is to give a try. We could think of making a test in the small. We can start cloning the repo and transforming it into a repository only for one of our documents.

Is there a member who can volunteer on this  "experiment in the small"? Which of the documents do we want to try on?
