I would think it were a good idea to maintain these archives as suggested. 
However, the srs ODD files are already available within SRS itself in the 
WWW interface if you add  /oddfile="XXX.sdl" to the #library definition. 

In order to decrease dependency of your selection to other variables may 
I suggest that you (1) use standard vaules wherever possible, and (2) if
you do new fields descriptions etc. then place it into the odd file of your 
database. I.e., dont try to place #srsfield definitions in srsgeneral.sdl
but keep it local. Then, all you need is update srsdb.sdl and eventually
add a new database group. You might need to add hyperlink.sdl also but 
if you keep it attached to a limited length it shouldn't be a problem.
