Nope. What you're asking for goes against Subversion's design paradigm
The server has no control over what the client asks for nor what the
client does with the data it receives. You would need to modify both
the client and the server to have some kind of authentication/validation
in order to ensure that only "authorized" clients are used. Or you
could require that people use custom checkout scripts, but you would
need to audit your people's computers to detect any other svn clients.
Obligatory question: why would you want/need to force people to
checkout entire branches?

can only be implemented by a client-side customization (e.g. by
