In my experience in updating the release pages, the format and the 
process seems pretty simple and straight-forward so I don't think moving 
just the /download tree is worth the effort.

The only non-transparent thing I've run into so far is when the need 
arose to add rewrite rules or aliases at the web server level.  I 
couldn't find a way to do that via the svn repo (not unreasonable) but 
requests on the list to get someone to help went unanswered and it still 
is not clear who to turn to for such matters.
