How would this be preferable to setting `vc-prepare-patches-separately'
as a directory local variable?  That way you don't have to remember to
use a prefix argument whenever invoking `vc-prepare-patch'.

This is the usual problem with numeric prefix arguments.  You don't get
that much expressivity with just an integer.

That is why I would hesitate to assign any particular interpretation to
prefix arguments, before considering and weighing the options.
