I wouldn't call that 'fun' ;)

No. As you said, we have to ask the repo first to know that.

Yes, that's what it will mean.

No. It doesn't mean that.
Sure we _could_ show the overlay that way, but it would a little bit
be disturbing because if you reserve the file so you can edit it, you
will want the modified icon overlay to show up, and not the locked
overlay.

If you want to know more about Subversion implements locking, have a look at
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/notes/locking/locking-ui.txt
and all the other files in the same directory
