Subversion does not care about the tree structure. "trunk", "branches"
and "tags" are only the recommended way to organize one's tree. If you
want something else, which suits you more, you can do it.

No, Subversion only works with copies, as Subversion knows only about
directories and files and as it does not care how the organization of
the tree is.
