I think it was a lack of communication, If section 3.1 (as it does now in my 
local copy) clearly states that packages are not required to live in the 
Common Repository, it is fine.

I have not figured this out yet. :-) I think we need one implementation first, 
to see how it will work. For example, the CERTIFICATION.xml file should 
always live in the common repository or a even more secured place to ensure 
validity of the process. I think we will quickly figure out ways to do that, 
once we have done it once.

I think a lot of code can be reused. I have started a package that aims at 
providing an implementation of the process independently from the 
svn.zope.org layout.
