CVS best practice

My question is more a question of best practice as opposed to how to use

The system I work on consists of a number components. Each component is
a separately built Java application, all referencing portions of a
common database. Different components use different tables; some tables
are shared by many components, while some are used by a single
component. Over the life of the system, schema changes on the same table
may have been required by different applications for different purposes.

We script all of our database changes and store the scripts in our
repository, but this has led to some "spirited" debate about repository
structure. Our DBA wants to have a database-centric repository hierarchy
where all database scripts are stored in a CVS module named for the
database to which the script applies. There would be submodules for
Tables, Stored Procedures, Indexes, etc. I, on the other hand, want
scripts associated with a particular application to be stored in "SQL"
or "Schema" submodule under the module for that application.

What do others do?
