Generally as I figured...were you to use Subversion for document
management, you could easily manage getting the content changes done,
but you'd need to layer on top of it some kind of external approval
system.

Although, with TortoiseSVN client-side hooks, you might be able to tie
the commit in to the launching of such a system, where needed, or
integrate a system in in a similar way as to how TortoiseSVN integrates
with Explorer.

But practically it would be a nightmare as many operations require
multiple server round trips with each one requiring authentication. We
get this complaint often from svn+ssh users who are not using pageant.
