Does it matter if svn:date isn't in the same order as rev?

Hi. I am building a new repository out of the ashes of my old one :-),
and am taking the opportunity to re-organise things a bit.

My question is, is svn:date used for anything other than letting users
know when a change happened? E.g. if I imported lots of stuff into the
repository at revision 1, and then found some older stuff with several
revisions that I decided to import as revs 2, 3, 4, etc. would it matter
if I changed svn:date for those revisions to reflect when I actually
changed those things?

So I'd have:

rev 1, svn:date = today, when I imported that stuff.
rev 2, svn:date = several years ago when I first began the stuff I'm
importing now.
rev 3, svn:date = several years ago, a few days later.

The stuff with the retro-active svn:date would be on different paths
than the normally imported stuff.
