Pretty sure you're asking this in the wrong place. This is something
the subversion libraries would need to support. Also apache+ldap
would suffers from the same problem. It re-opens and re-auths multiple
times just like svn+ssh. However, your comment on svnserve is wrong.
It does not require anonymous access.
mentions how to disable anon-access.

I'd love it though if they could redesign things to not have to
continually re-auth, as this was one of the things i had to overcome.
Our initial server setup was apache+mod_pam+winbind, but winbind was
using way too much CPU time to authenticate and was making operations
like checkout, or log retrieval, take 6x longer than no
authentication. Ended up using apache+ldap which used less CPU, but
still because it has to authenticate every time, it takes about 30%
longer because of the auth. Didn't use svnserve because tying it to a
windows domain would have been much more complicated, and at it didn't
support per directory permissions.
