I think you're misinterpreting what "foreign repository branch" means.
It does /not/ imply that Subversion would suddenly become distributed.
Rather, it would do away with all the hoops you have to jump through in
order to work with vendor branches. It would also remove 99% of the use
cases for out-of-repo externals.

Both are worthy goals IMO.
