At present, that's true. Under your proposed new regime, copying
svn:date properties will not be allowed if that would cause the dates
to become out of order, and that will happen very often when people use
svk mirrors in the usual way. (Just mirror multiple remote repositories
into different subtrees of a single local repository, or keep a local
branch in the same repository as a mirrored branch, and wait long enough
between sync operations to allow interleaved commits to happen.)
