Just a quick note. Once "svn:quoted-propname:xyzzy" is used as the name
of an element or attribute in XML, the XML is ill-formed (fatal error,
stop processing).

Except for older processors that permit colon in a name, but do not
interpret the colon. For XML+Namespaces, more than one colon causes
breakage.

In other words, as a fix for the DAV restriction to names valid in XML,
this one doesn't work (although the basic concept would work, mostly,
apart from the fact that whatever you use as a separator character isn't
reserved and other people may be using it for something else).

Illegal as a name in XML+Namespaces.
