"assume"?? I am trying to find a solution in which Subversion "knows". Why
do you not want to find such a solution?

I was asked to give an example of a feature Subversion is lacking, and
gave one. You seem to agree on that, using phrases like "assume" and "try
first".

This is what I am proposing, only that Subversion should manage the
properties. You put the burden of the special property handling on every
client, when it may be implemented once in Subversion.
