Just wondering, what would happen if someone changed that property? I can
think of reasons why it would be good to allow changing it, and reasons why
it would be bad. What (besides a "relocate" command) would rely on this?

If you store the GUID in a new file, then only someone with admin access to
the repository's server can change it. People might want to tighten their
pre-commit access control scripts to prevent normal committers from changing
a revision property (either intentionally or accidentally), especially
because it is unversioned.
