Creating a copy of the base directory for the tag would be correct.
Could be something like /tags/Product-Stable and every time there's a
new version that is stable you would delete /tags/Product-Stable and
copy over the new stable. The copy is a cheap operation which means
its quick and takes up a very small ammount of space.

If you used the method I mentioned above they would checkout the
/tags/Product-Stable location. Then when you delete this tag and copy
in the new tag, they would just need to do an svn update to pick up
what was associated with the new tag.
