You can certainly do that -- supply a custom XSLT file as explained above,
put your messages into that file. Users will see them when they visit the
repository URL in a web browser.
Of course, users don't usually access a repository URL in a web browser;
they usually do so in a Subversion client. I don't know of any way to supply
a custom message to someone using a Subversion client.
And of course the above only works if you're serving your repository with
Apache. If you're serving it with svnserve, then I have no solution for that
