ra_svn tunneled over ssh is a fundamentally different protocol than
ra_svn over TCP. The URL identifies the protocol as well as the
hostname and path. HTTP proxies are mostly transparent (you use the
same protocol with a different endpoint), but this is not.

The semantics you're looking for sound much more like URNs than URLs.
(Not that URN support has ever materialized, but that's no excuse for
hijacking URLs into acting like URNs.)
