Yes. The devil lies in the definition of "admin" -- specifically,
"server admin" vs. "repository admin".

At work, I created a similar setup (without the SVNParentPath) -- the
server admin can create repositories, but the repository admin can edit
the mod_dav_svn authz.conf file, which is stored in the repository
itself. That way, project managers can add or remove peoples' access to
the project's repository without having to bug the IT department -- or,
worse yet, me! :)
