I'd rather have to kick you once a year because 'svn st -v' is not
consistent with 'svn st', than have to kick you twenty times a day
because 'svn st' has got confusing output with lots of weird asterisks
and numbers which I don't want to know about.

These 'st -v' and 'st -u' commands seem like things which are "nice to
have" and maybe useful for debugging, but I can't see myself using them
regularly, to say the least. Unlike plain 'st' which I'll use constantly
- am I missing something there?

I think it'll be a great shame if you make plain 'st' have the chatty
output just to be consistent with the other commands.
