In the same time does it make sense to protect svn namespace?

I mean, check for example that user don't set svn:keyword
vs. svn:keywords, or svn:foobar. At the moment this is possible, and
I have been bitten by this several times.

This will cause an another compatibility problem between client and
server, but this would be worth it.
