revprop packing: why aren't _all_ revprops packed?

Hijacking the thread to veer _slightly_ off topic:

Why is revprop packing an explicit 'svnadmin pack' operation? If we
agree to put revprops in sqlite, why not do that from the start? Just
open the shard-specific sqlite file, creating it if necessary, and
write the new set of revprops there. No distinction between packed and
unpacked revprops, no 'min-unpacked-revprop' file.

Was there a good reason not to do it that way?
