Sure, that's easier for most cases. 

One exception though: If you are in the middle of a larger staging process 
using git add (-p), and someone suddenly asks you to share your local 
changes, then the separate repo approach will not disturb your staging 
progress. If you commit and reset in your working repo, you have to start 
adding from scratch again. 

But in practice I guess that won't be a problem very often.
