A fine idea in theory, but not quite as much traction in reality as bcp38.

Creating a need for a BCP for retrieving BCPs so that you get the
right version rather than typing "git clone" and erroneously referring
to whatever is tagged "-develop" seems like a Bad Plan.

It's also not a really reasonable method for distributing
point-in-time documents once people are done with collaborating on
creating them.  Most end consumers will not care about the change
history.
