You were able to find it because the realm string included the url of
your repository (which is what most servers do). But not all servers do
that. And that's the info that's not stored explicitly.
So an UI which would provide what you're asking for would just fail for
all repositories that don't have an url set up in their realm string.

And of course: the url mentioned in the realm string might not even be
the one to the repository but to another server, i.e. multiple repos
could have the same url mentioned there. So in those cases it would fail
