I think it boils down to common practice and the principle of least surprise. I believe it is far more common to see projects with a single repository and multiple branches, than ones where each main version is kept on a separate repo.

The flow presented at http://nvie.com/posts/a-successful-git-branching-model/ has become so common that there is a standard tool to implement it: https://github.com/nvie/gitflow which is used in many different projects. So I think using this workflow gains you appreciable standardization and common knowledge. Also see http://jeffkreeftmeijer.com/2010/why-arent-you-using-git-flow/

My 2 cents.
