OR to rephrase what you've just said:

 it's about maintaining forks and encouraging forking.

If we setup a new repo at hosted, everytime someone wants to play with
something we'll have an infinite set of repos and we'll have a lot of
languishing and abandoned branches that never get cleaned up.

Making a repo at fedorapeople.org is trivial and available and it
doesn't require any intervention by people in the infrastructure group.
Just drop your repo there and go!
