It's the way a real changeset engine (which Subversion isn't) works.
BitKeeper is an example, Arch probably is, too.

No, "svn log" _is_ an automatic ChangeLog generator, as long as the
commit log format is maintained. There's not only no need to maintain
ChangeLog files in the repository, it's much better _not_ to have them,
as they only complicate merging.
