I think I get what you're saying but to make sure let me argue against you: isn't that an obvious target to have a file db_config.php for an attacker looking for passwords? Is the idea that now there is only one file to "specially" protect, but how would this be protected more so than other files? No PHP source code files are made public so wouldn't this be the same level of security?

What is a configuration repository? I hardly know anything about anything you said.
