There is precedent for application-specific config files overriding
generic environment variables (EDITOR and VISUAL). nmh comes to mind.
On the other hand, an application-specific variable like SVN_EDITOR
would probably want to override the config files.

(But, no strong opinion. If people want all of the environment
variables to override the config file, that's not too unreasonable.)
