Typically, even in the 'friendly fork' scenario, such setups don't work 
out very well over the long term, as the work required by actual humans 
to coordinate between different repositories accumulating changes at a 
different pace, in conjunction with internal interface drift, leads to 
the problem that the relative 'payoff' for the humans putting that work 
in tends to go towards zero over time as differences tend to increase, 
rather than decrease.

You have to consider the feasibility of doing something once separately 
from the viability of doing something over and over again, and having to 
deal with more than one way to do it over and over again.
