Just my two pence worth...
From a hooking point; I would have to say that i would only really care about what the client level is. For example. On pre-commit i would like to know if the client is at least 1.7, so that I can then reject the commit. I can't imagine, for the mo anyways, any scenario where i would care if this is a windows client, svn kit, etc.
From a server point; I would imagine that this would be like the preverbal pot 'o gold. You could introduce new functions with the assurance that the client is of the correct spec. Backwards compatibility would also be easier with the introduction of a 'minimum level' for the methods...
Food for thought really. _____

It probably does not hurt anything to "do more" as your proposal does.
