What's the point? This would only lead to unnecessary duplication and  
maintenance problems.

I don't see how this would work. Each distribution would likely  
require their own repository anyway. If the distributions aren't  
different and don't require different packages, then what's the point  
of the distribution itself?

There's no problem with setting up another AUR. As far as I know it's  
portable and does not depend on the Archlinux website. However,  
duplicating data seems unnecessary and would only create problems.
