Sure. Associating the repository format file with the FS format is a
layering violation.

The next time we need to bump the FS format version (I don't think we
really have consensus on whether we can do that before 2.0), we can add
a format file to the relevant FS directory. The repository format file
will refer to the repository format, although we don't really expect to
change that incompatibly in the forseeable future.
