I was thinking the same thing. If we merge extra and community, we'll need to set permissions on a package-by-package basis instead of a repo-by-repo basis. Better keep them separate.
Either way, if it is decided that community should move to the devtools backend, how hard would it be to decouple the AUR from community?
No too hard, there's no issue with that. You would basically stop the daemon running that adds packages to the database and clear out anything currently in community. There's not a whole lot of community specific code in the AUR.
