Not really. If you had 100 users, and wanted 95 of them to have write-access, wouldn't it be much easier to have a 'readers' file with 5 names than a 'writers' file with 95 names?

And, for the reverse, if you have 100 users and want 5 of them to have write access and 95 of them to have read access, then you create a 'writers' file with 5 names.

access to a repo, not the readers file.

No, the passwd file determines whether the user can access the repository. It has nothing to do with read or write privileges.
