I think the current scheme may have been useful at a time where DVCS didn't exist.  You would maintain an unversioned copy of Modules/Setup.dist in your work-tree.  Nowadays you can fork a github repo and maintain your own branch with changes to a tracked file.  I don't think Modules/Setup deserves special treatment compared to, say, setup.py or Makefile.pre.in.
