Any objections to ripping out our own copies of APR's vcproj files and
just documenting that they must be converted manually (just once)
before building Subversion?

The positive side is no more maintenance and tracking of APR project
files. The down side is users have to manually open the Apache .dsw
workspace to convert it to a VS solution, but people that build from
source are pretty used to that already, I think.
