You mean the Python Core Dev maintaining a set of Vim files as a fork
from the vim.org maintained files and adding new features when they
come up and be submitted the vim.org.
If that is the idea, it is indeed a good one.
But often it has happened that someone at the vim.org has noticed the
changes in Python and updated the files and the scripts at vim.org

Possibly and perhaps that is reason to discard our Misc/Vim in favor
of vim.org files.
But if you think there *should* be an official recommendation, some
pointers would definitely serve.
