Correct, the default behavior will not change - 'svn edit' remains optional.

However, the WC backend is likely to change. Consolidating all the .svn subdirs into a single file, or into a single dir.

<anecdote>
For me in particular, this will be very welcome. I have a badly-behaved tool (from Cadence) and this is its behavior:
        The Cadence tool assumes it owns a whole directory that you're working on.
        It goes in, modifies all the stuff it cares to modify...
        It finds the ".svn" directory, deletes it, and creates a ".svn" file containing only a Space char.
        And then I'm unhappy.
