For example, suppose we have a release we are labeling 10.20.0. In CVS, I am unable to use a "." in the tag, so I am forced to employ an unwieldy 10_20_0 or something similar, then explain to the "suits" why the release number does not match the internal docs.

Yes, in Subversion, a tag is just a directory in the repository that you
can call anything you want (as long as it meets normal file system file
name restrictions).
