Conceptually, yes it is better. We always want to identify items in a
repository with a <root, relpath> tuple. Consistently.
Within wc_db (and hopefully percolating out to libsvn_wc and further),
we also carry around the repository's UUID, so you'll see lots of
3-tuples of <root, relpath, uuid>. And in some cases, we need the
revision (like with original_*), so you get a 4-tuple.
Even though we do not allow variant repositories within the "same"
working copy, the wc_db allows for it and should be coded that way. We
should continue to push those concepts further out. Today, working
copy subtrees from a separate repository are *distinct* working
copies. The subtree is labeled as a "working copy root" (per
svn_wc__check_wc_root). In the future, we can stitch these together
into one big working copy.
