Well, personally I don't see the ability to reverse-proxy svn://
connections as especially useful, but assuming that it doesn't overly
complicate the protocol and the codebase I wouldn't object to it either.

Now if you were talking about a write-through caching proxy, that I
could see being pretty useful (Perforce has such a proxy, for example,
and it's often used for speeding up read-access to a remote repository,
as you would see in a branch office of a company), but that seems rather
more complex than what you're talking about here.
