I think I now get the gist of what the implementation entails.

So in reality, the new wizzbang protection couldn't be made to work for
existing revisions, only new ones, to which the property is applied in
future.
Could these be made "Global" properties and pertain to the repository as
a whole, a bit like global ignores and use your type 2 solution.

Actually sometimes I do. Thanks to the versatility of Subversion coupled
with TortoiseSVN I have no compunction SVN-Deleting Branches and Tags
which have served their purpose and are finished with. The trail in the
log and revision graph is sufficient for history sake. Most projects
here are kept small by keeping code shared between projects as externals.

Now theres another place to bang some protection on. The external code
checked out as a WC could also benefit from a warning if accidentally
modified and committed.

As some others on the list are apt to say "sorry for then noise"
