[arch-releng] archiso /repo directory naming

I see there are two directories with packages:
/repo/any -> contains packages for "any" architecture
/repo/pkg -> contains arch specific packages (i.e. i686 on an i686 live cd) plus symlinks to all files in /repo/any

my questions: why do you name the directory /repo/pkg and not something like /repo/i686 ? specifying the architecture seems more sensible and consistent to me.
Also, since these images are the copies of what's in core, why not use the name "core" in there somewhere? like /repo/core-any and /repo/core-i686 or even better.. why not follow the same convention as used on our mirrors? that seems like the cleanest.
then it would be /repo/core/os/any and /repo/core/os/i686 (not sure why the 'os' subdir is needed though)
