I think you misunderstood me.

I know that subversion is storing all revisions (the deleted elements

And this is the problem. Many times we first upload big binary files
also, and repository grown too.
My theory that if I did dump to use the last revisions, these binary
files, and all version differents are removed, and the restoration
(load) of the elements is making a clean repository.

I dumped a project with last revision. All of the dummy, nonrelevant
files are removed.
I reloaded this dump.
The local (development) directories checked out again. I have only the
last version, without the dummy elements.
