First, this question belongs on the users@ list, as it hasn't a thing in the
world to do with the development *of* Subversion (despite being about
development *atop* Subversion).

Secondly, file properties are themselves versioned as part of the total
concept of a Subversion versioned file. You cannot "change" a versioned
file's already-committed properties, just as you cannot "change" a versioned
file's already-committed file contents.
