So what's wrong with the repository itself as the place?

I know it seems silly to be storing a generated file in CVS but
OTOH if the format doesn't change the changes between successive
versions should be small.

I think this is one of the rare instances where storing a generatable
file is advantageous. The same would be if there were any time-consuming
generated parts (say an hour on a normal PC): storing the result in CVS
is not at all a bad idea then.

Gnome also has both commit messages and changelogs.
