One thing we like about the svn property approach is that it is shared
between developers and that our CM administrator can control this on the
subversion end so all developers are forced to enter isue ids in their
commits to those projects requiring it in the eye of the CM team.

I am not sure if a common commit dialog would be of that great of
benefit. I suppose it would depend on how many cool additions it could
have. Such as issue tracking integration, and maybe integrated compare
view? But as an example, there are some bits of essential SVN-specific
info we show for the files that I would not want to give up. That means
we have to supply that piece of the UI, at which point what is the
common dialog still providing us?

I assume if we integrate with a Mylar extension point we would not need
any SVN properties. It would just recognize and use the Mylar config.
