Initially JavaSVN didn't included direct fsfs repository access support and
users were suggested to install server (svnserve) or use svn+ssh to access
repository on the local computer. However, there are applications other then
Subclipse that interact with Subversion repositories and it is much more
usable for those applications to access repository directly. Also direct
access could be faster comparing to access through the server.

I agree with you that from the end-user point of view "file" protocol
support is not really important, but for some projects it could be critical.
Also it opens a way to pure Java Subversion server implementation.
