(We're probably boring people by now, sorry folks!)

So a user has a disk image, they're using it, running a VM, have it
mounted, whatever. A maintainer comes along and wants to change that
image -- how do they do that? Do they do it under the feet of the person
who has it mounted, or must they wait for a dismount?

Could you have a mechanism where each user has a selection of the images
checked out (their own WC with a few images in it) on a local disk, and
a script that updates their images when a new version is available?
Something like a nightly "svn update" to get the latest changes.

How fast should a user get the changes made by a maintainer? Instantly?
Within an hour? Overnight?

Could you have a read-only WC for all of your users with automated "svn
update" running over the full 5TB, and individual (smaller) working
copies for each of the maintainers who actually need to change the files?
