You haven't said exactly why you find this a pain. I'm guessing that you
have to change the list of supported repositories, and don't want to
have to restart the xinetd daemon each time you change xinetd.conf (I'm
not extremely well-versed in UNIX - am I correct in assuming you have to
restart xinetd whenever you change the .conf file?).

You could use the workaround for xinetd versions that have a very
limited command line: just have xinetd invoke a script which supplies
all the arguments. You will still have to type in '--allow root' for
each repository, but it will be easier to maintain.
