Partly playing devil's advocate here: what is the difference
then between current copr's and multiple small/individual repos?

Is it just better discoverability/filtering and ease of adding repos?
If copr provided signing and repo packages would there be much difference?
I guess it is possible for copr deps to be expressed as
one copr repo requiring another: so kind of meta-packaging.

Actually I quite like the idea of the flexibility of a repo
for (enabling) individual copr repos but just trying to understand
better what it would give us.  In a way I almost feel like we
need both for greater flexibility, but maybe a repo of coprs
and a stable ring 2 repo would be sufficient for many use-cases?
