Very good point there at the end: we should keep our case designs usable by ordinary hackers/makers as much as our code and schematics and PCBs, which supports your general sentiment.
Also, as a side point, and to get people started more easily, it means we should carefully select and check in commonly-useful versions of the (generated) STL as well as any up stream source for it in the same way that we check in the Gerbers for the PCBs. Though saving generated intermediate files is generally considered poor form, for particular common and useful intermediates that speed up bootstrapping a system (or checking that generation of them is going to plane), I think we should do it.
