I'm sure it has been discussed often before. I did a quick search of the
users@ archives, and found a relevant thread from 2006:

http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2006-08/0612.shtml

The OP mentions it as a hard requirement for them, and compares it with
some CVS feature. It also refers vaguely to prior discussions and even
design proposals (but no concrete links unfortunately). It might be worth
digging some more in the archives.

Also, lots of hits can be found if you google for "svn log template". For
instance on stackoverflow:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/983026/how-do-i-create-a-svn-commit-message-template-and-hook-to-verify

And apparently there is an analogous TortoiseSVN feature:

It might be interesting to see how the TSVN feature works (and analyze
whether our proposed API might be able to replace their implementation
eventually) ...
