For dump / load this makes sense, but how far do you want to take it?
For example, suppose a client is written which can take a GNU patch
file and commit it directly without the intermediate use of a working
copy. Should it force svn:date to the timestamp on the patch file?
That seems wrong to me.

As for revisions being chronologically ordered, the obvious solution is
floating point revision numbers, so that new ones can be inserted
between existing ones. (:
