FWIW, a lot of people seem to use git as a Subversion client (using
git-svn) for pretty much exactly this workflow. bzr also claims to work
well against a Subversion upstream branch but I don't know anyone who
uses it that way.

It's sort of interesting that, despite fairly large discrepancies in
data models, "atomic whole-tree versions of a single branch" is enough
of a lingua franca for modern version control tools to interoperate to
some degree.
