Ok, that's what I'd recommend: leave the DocumentRoot pointing at an empty directory.

I'm not certain whether this might be too restrictive.

That seems reasonable.
I don't know if debian's chown and chmod are more lenient, but on Mac OS X the -R flag must go immediately after the command name, e.g.
chown -R www-data:subversion /DATA/svn && chmod -R 770 /DATA/svn
otherwise I get the error "-R: No such file or directory"

I think this doesn't do anything since /DATA/svn already has execute permission for the group via the chmod 770 command above.

Doesn't seem related. (User "test" isn't being used anywhere here.)
Do you have SELinux enabled on this box? If so it must be configured too:
