I think that's due to one of the most severe misconceptions of SVN, not
distinguishing a tag (should be: bidirectional link/copy read-only) from
a branch (should be: bidirectional link/copy read-write) from a copy
(unidirectional copy). Not to mention that revision numbers must be used
as part of a tag to be really precise. Related to this issue is the
exclusion of tag/branch/copy operation from the "svn:external" property
feature.

Of course it eases development of SVN and allows a lot of 'new' concepts
within a project not possible with CVS. But handling tags/branches the
way I described would require an adaption of the subversion client, the
server as well as the database backend structure which means currently
the VC system can't handle it correctly out-of-the-box.

*sigh*
