Elsewhere in this discussion, there seems also to be a policy implied or
recommended, that the client "shall never, ever ..." as well. Together,
these amount to a policy that SVN "shall never, ever ...."

If that's where we're at, it would seem to eliminate many of these
requested features a priori. It would certainly shorten the discussions
a lot, anyway ;-)
