You should always specify a root URL, but it will not have any impact on
checkout to my knowledge. Why do you have to specify it? There isn't yet
a Subversion API to determine it programmatically, and there are instances
where it is handy to just run a command against the root URL.

How you structure your repository is up to you. There is no real
significance to the names you use. There is one very small exception. If
you are doing a commit to a URL with "tags" in the name, we will warn you
that you might be committing to an incorrect location. We just copied
this feature from TortoiseSVN.
