If adding modules to Drupal.org becomes too difficult, people will not 
bother and will just host them elsewhere, in a dozen different 
elsewhere's.  That's the worst possible scenario, and if anything would 
make duplication worse because there wouldn't even be a single 
collection to check for existing modules.
