If you mean "single format", I might agree (but that is /much/ harder than
it looks, the needs range from a handful of variables to complex structured
"programs" in specialized languages). If you also mean "single repository",
you are way off the deep end (Hint: Single point of failure, no way to
handle alternative configurations, no way to chroot the config, ...)
