Just a thought, what about an svn:readonly property? If it is set on a
file or folder svn could run without the text-base for it. Changes on
such files would never make it to the repository.

Is this realizable or are there too many places where i would have to
add a check for svn:readonly in subversion?

That wouldn't help in the case that i want to modify files without a
text-base though..
