Ahh, I just thought of the right answer to this question:

In the approach you suggest, you're basically re-implementing all the
logic in svn_fs_merge within DAV. This means that the filesystem has
packaged up that logic in a way that's not useful to you. If you
could think of an alternative, easy-to-understand interface that would
allow you and the commit process to share the logic, that would be the
best outcome.

I guess the logic isn't that complex, so the duplication still isn't a
big deal. It's just finesse points.
