Well, yes, but the linux distributed development model, is a bit different
than the centralized subversion using d-i development model.

In a way it is a bit strange that d-i was developped as a componentized and
developped model, but all is hold in a single debian sub-archive and a single
centralized subversion repository.

Maybe. A centralized repo is a good thing for a more intertwined grouped
development model.
