NTFS and symlinks

Hello there.

Under NFTS exist the 'reparse point' file attribute. Using this attribute it
is possible to implement analogue of symlinks on the directory (for example
JUNCTION utility http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/misc.shtml#junction).
In projects it is required to have an opportunity to create symlinks on
directories more often. Why under Windows (NTFS) to not implement creation of
symlinks (reparse points) on directory by SVN?
