So then let's just express it differently:

We can have several "sub repositories" (in reality just sub folders of 
/repos/asf/ooo) that can be checked out separately. That's an option 
that you forget easily when you are used to DSCM.

In our own interest we should avoid having changesets that cross the 
boundaries of these sub folders. This would create problems in case we 
wanted to move to separate git repos in the future or allow to maintain 
bridges or conversions to separate git repos.
