Let's split some (relatively thick, actually) hairs.

A "master repository" that provides a reference for ids: good thing,
probably (though, now that you raise it..... at least an assumption to
question a bit).

A "master repository" that tries to encode all previous (or even
ongoing) history at some arbitrarily fine level of granularity:  uh,
sounds like make-work to me.
