This is actually an argument for my point of view. :)

Subversion provides a feature that solves all the cases you mentioned,
including refactoring between different projects, yet you don't use it
because it's "too obscure". Instead you expect another feature to be
delayed because we currently do not know how to transactionally modify
several working-copy databases at the same time.

Why not make the effort to make sparse working copies less obscure instead?
