Yes, it is *very* bad by design.

It would be much better if would contain several repo's, each oriented
to a specific distro, and when one ould upload a package one would specify the
distros it will work on, and then it get's added to the local repo.

You don't have to use only the pre-defined repo's, you can set your own
repo and point at it. No need to wait for the distro developers, this is not
Apple Store :)
