And that's the beauty of a DVCS.

There is no concept of a "central" repository, except for convention of
people treating a particular one that way.  You can merge back and forth
between different repositories whenever you feel like it.  So you could
have a bzr repo for your localization, and we could merge the central
server from it periodically in order to give people the convenience of
being able to check it out from one spot. (just an example)
