Another idea would be to take a federated approach.  Anyone can store
test documents wherever they want, but agree upon a way to describe
metadata for each test document, e.g.: a shadow XML file for each test
document.  foo.odt would have a foo.odt.xml metadata file, with
contents like:

<editor>Apache OpenOffice</editor>
<description>This document contains 1000 tables of 1000 rows and 10
columns each, for 10 million table cells</description>

I don't mean to propose a specific form for the metadata, but to
suggest that encoding these facts in a common way allows us to work
with the test documents more effectively.  For example, even with
several repositories, if we agree on the metadata, it is easy to write
tools that can query the document test sets and extract desired test
cases, e.g., all OOXML performance test cases for spreadsheets, or all
footnote layout test cases created in LibreOffice for ODF 1.2.
