This appears to rely on a 1-1 mapping from UUID to URL. What happens
if I want to have multiple working copies referring to the same
repository but using different URLs? It is quite simple to checkout
the same repository to two separate working copies, one using ra_dav
and one using ra_svn. This would require two entries in your
repository file but there is only one UUID.

I don't even need to use different RA libraries to have a problem.
It's possible that I want to have a "commit" working copy over https
and another "reference" working copy over http. Again both working
copies would refer to the same repository UUID but would use different
