I like the latter form. And it doesn't bother me that it calls out svn:date
instead of simply saying that all svn: properties could have unexpected
behavior here. We obviously don't think of our svn: properties as mere
implementation details -- users (and API hackers) are expected to know that
certain properties have certain meanings.

I've committed the with-date flavor in r21070. Thanks.
