If there is a separate specification, like the DMCI, which already
specifies a namespace and property names - I don't see a reason why
Subversion programs should not use those properties, instead of
defining their own copies in 'svn'.

And even though here the specification might be something a little
more ad hoc (if the DMCI isn't suitable), I see the situation as the
