You don't have to *host* your plugins on wp-plugins.org, the site is 
intended purely for developers. It's for hosting development. Run your 
own bug tracker, downloads, whatever the hell you want. But if you want 
to be part of the official plugins infrastructure, and get all the 
promotion as a result of that, keep the source code (or a copy of it) in 
the official SVN repository.
