IIRc this was under discussion in past but was dismissed due to adding
complexity and little overall understanding of this. However, I don't
think cloning the repository is this much traffic. Also a goal was to
have plugins and its patches being reviewed before entering master to
enforce a minimum on quality. This also includes some
fire-and-forget-plugins of some developers as you can see from
MAINTAINERS files there are a lot of plugins out of maintenance.
