Nope they are not. At least not here. But you could ask yourself: do
we relly need a version control system at all. If everybody takes care
in naming directories and copying files we dont even need a version
control.... :-) Just kidding. But with svn:final I just want to be
sure my todays tag will have the same contents it has today. I dont
even want to have to check for it (revision numbers or such). If a
customer needs to have a specific tag i want to retrieve exactly that.
Today tomorrow and in twenty years, no matter what....

While reading the messages (for example with mod_authz_svn) I got the
impression its rather hard to forbid committing to a specific url with
regexes. And of course one had to use pre-commit hooks since
mod_authz_svn doesnt care got the svn:,svn+ssh: and file: users. But
maybe I picked the wrong messages here while researching...
