Not really, it just never occurred to us as important. We've been using
the global revision numbers themselves for so long (to do merges,
annotate issues, etc), we've never felt the "itch" to refer to them by
human names.

This wouldn't be very hard to write. In the general case, we need some
sort of API for finding all revisions that contain a specific property
name/value. At the moment, this is already happening when we convert a
date to a revision. The RA->get_dated_revision() API scans all the
revisions, reading their 'svn:date" property and returns exactly one
revision. We just need to generalize this idea. It just that nobody's
bothered to do it yet.
