That's a crazy amount of work for something that will never be used in reality.

It's a good thing to design for the future though.

For now, a static template (with a $Files$ keyword and a pre-commit
hook that replaces the keyword or rejects the commit) will do fine.

In the future, when people start creeping out of the twilight zone
with requests for templates which require a network turn-around, your
suggested way of doing things can be elegantly applied on top:
If a (i-)property named 'svn:server-template' exists on any of the
items to be committed, a future client should go directly to the
server and fetch a dynamic template.
