Right, but if someone were to change it themselves, it could do funny things
to relocate. If it's implemented as a revision property, then someone could
change it accidentally (bad), or change it on purpose, say, to make one
repository masquerade as another by copying the GUID (possibly good or bad).

Aside from that, I think it makes more sense as a revision property. But
possibly it should be read-only, or else people would probably want/need to
tighten the access controls.
