Baselines in subversion

I have just come across subversion as a possible candidate for a version
control system and wondered if it has the concept of baselines. What I mean
by a baseline is a set of specific versions of files at a specific point in
time. This set should be 'locked' so that it can always be referred to
later. For example, we would take a baseline called "acceptance v1.0" just
before acceptance tests and this would be a list of files at specific
versions, e.g.
a.java v1
b.java v2
c.java v1

If the tests failed then we would want to create a new baseline called
"acceptance v1.1" which had the same versions of files as "acceptance v1.1"
as a starting point with updates applied, e.g. c.java has been removed and
d.java has been added

a.java v1
b.java v3
d.java v1
