You are.

It is an implementation detail, not policy.

To do it 100% generically dub repository will have to understand each 
VCS system, check it out and then archive it before shipping it off on 
request. Instead of just downloading an archive from the provider.

You may not know this, but in the past the repository has had problems 
crashing from doing these updates and then performing downloads (its 
been resolved, but it really doesn't have the infrastructure to do it 
properly I think).
