Storing configuration in repository directories

Hi,

Is there any particular reason why *repository* meta-data (as opposed to
meta-data associated with the contents) shouldn't be stored in the
repository directory?

I'm thinking of recording repository ownership and project team membership
information in one or more files either directly in the repository
directory or in a sub-directory of it.

For example you would have

.../myRepo/ -+- .repoMeta/ <- this would be my new dir.
             +- README.txt
             +- conf/
             +- dav/
             +- db/
             +- format
             +- hooks/
             +- locks/

For example would performing a dump fail if it found objects within the
repository directory that it wasn't expect? What about other system
commands (svnadmin verify)?

Cheers,

Dg.
