I'm a bit concerned with client flexibility here.

The occasional build system wants to recognize and omit revision
control directories from certain operations. It's not a good practice
(especially because the number of revision control programs grows with
time), but it happens. emacs is an example. If the revision control
subdir could be any string, then that becomes more error-prone.

I don't know if that's a compelling argument, though.
