While this topic is still fresh, I was wondering how difficult/easy it
would be to tweak the install scripts to prohibit Subversion from
installing mod_dav_svn.so into the Apache directory itself.

Perhaps I am alone in feeling this way, but I don't believe that when a
program installs, it should ever touch other programs -- without
explicit permission.

The reason this is an issue is that after programs are compiled, I
usually wrap it in the native OS's packaging format (deb, rpm, Depot,
etc.) and I was surprised the first time I saw subversion coping the dav
module into the apache2 directory.
