I personally think focusing in on an existing DVCS target
would be a poor "vision". Subversion has grown out
of the replacement tool phase and should be thinking more
towards leading.

The question isn't what should Subversion do that git/mercurial
already do, but what are the users trying to do that DVCS is
currently solving better than Subversion?

Just being distributed isn't necessarily better. In fact,
it creates all sorts of problems for enterprises such as
backups, fine grained security, etc.
