To me, this sounds like a way you should go.

Mark the semantics of a directory that is a branch or a tag
explicitly, instead of by convention, from its location in the
repository.

The main thing that has bugged me with subversion from the start, is
that the semantics of branches or tags have existed only in user's
head, and in GUI tool heuristics, rather than being marked up
explictly in the repository.
