No hard-core reasons. I think that a majority of us simply think that
organizing by project, rather than branch, is just subjectively more
intuitive.

But this is a just a recommendation. You can organize a subversion
repository however you wish; your choice has no impact on subversion's
performance, only on how confused your users might be. Branches and
Tags are just ordinary directories, put wherever you want.
