Ik think there are 2 issues we should not confuse here:

- a repository of models
- a repository of metamodels

While apparently there is already a lot of material available for the  
latter (the metamodel zoo that has been referred to),
this is not really the case for the former. I always have a hard time  
finding appropriate (UML)-models that are freely accessible, in the  
appropriate format, and of sufficiently large size for performing  
research experiments.
