How is this granularity useful? To me, it sounds like way too much, too hard 
to move code around within the same domain, for example. We don't want to 
flood people with hundreds of repositories.

The generic workspace vs. specific formfactor split is well in line with how 
we see people deploying Plasma, you install the framework, the generic 
workspace, and then a package for a specific formfactor.
