Subversion is basically a tool for versioning files. As such, it neither cares
for the content of files, their names (provided the path inside the
repository is unique) or any meaning that some human might associate with it.
This basically means that your requirements are outside the scope of
Subversion and as such you won't find any support for them here.

However, apart from the purist file versioning, there is also the pragmatist
side. For that, you e.g. have hook scripts. For your particular case, I would
suggest a pre-commit hook that validates the commit and rejects it if it
doesn't suit your desires. That way, people trying to do something unwanted
will receive error messages.

A different approach is to regularly validate the content and send out a
summary to the team afterwards. That way, people are notified of shortcomings
and can issue according fixes.
