This has always bothered me, too.

But let me back a little more out of the box and ask -- is there any
particular reason why we need the activities table at all? I mean, if all
it provides is a mapping of "DAV activity" to "Subversion txn" why can't we
just use the Subversion txn name in the WebDAV protocol?
