It should, in theory. The only problem is that BerkeleyDB may not
behave so well over an SMB share, because BerkeleyDB requires
super-strict posix file-locking semantics. There have been mixed
reports about this.

Maybe David is thinking about writing a new network protocol that
marshalls svn commands directly over SMB! If BerkeleyDB can't
operate directly on an SMB-mounted drive letter, this would be the
only recourse, I guess.
