Implementing this directly in Subversion won't happen.
- Subversion uses DAV, not pure http. So it would need a separate lib to
do that.
- The bugtracking part is not tied to the repository, it is independent
of that and therefore there's no 'direct' connection between them.

I think the URL is needed for one reason:
there will be (believe me, there _will_ be) requests to add more
information, and each user will want "just that information". To prevent
changing the definitions and every client out there every two weeks the
URL is needed. That way you can just tell: click on the link and you
have the information there.
