It's up to the authors of hook scripts to make sure they run on the
machines they need to run on.

Letting a Subversion server run code on a client machine would be a
gaping security hole. The client-side hooks would not be enforced from
the server side. They would be installed and configured on the client
machine they are supposed to run on. The server would not even know
about them, just like it doesn't know about the client configuration file.
In enterprise environments admins often control what software is
installed on workstations and how it is configured, so they can
install and configure client-side hooks for their users.
