This (and a local blame) is currently implemented by svk, wherein a local mirror
of the remote repository is employed for both those functionalities. I'm not
saying that it wouldn't be nicer if the base svn server could do more of this
work, merely that there is more than one way to approach this problem.

Subversion is good at semi-disconnected operations (i.e. you can always do a
diff to see the WC changes). It is not intended to be used as a fully
disconnected system, but svk is...
