I think so. By using appropriately named branches, such as:

    branches/rev/file1
    branches/dev/file1
    branches/rev/file1

And when you're ready, merge or copy them to

    trunk/file1

You can achieve the same result without the debris in trunk, and trunk
becomes the "reference copy" it's normally used as.
