I agree with this for core blocks.

Will there be a different central repository then for the more exotic 
blocks that don't offer core functionality? Your community rule might 
hold people back from creating blocks for the fun of it.
Example: i've been thinking about creating a text-to-speech block just 
for the learning experience. Unlikely that more than 3 committers need 
this, so where will it end up if i want to donate it?

There was a discussion a few months ago about the need for a alike site, maybe this is relevant again now? By 
default you would allow all blocks into an incubation phase and do a 
vote on the ones to absorb in the cocoon dist.
