Did you read the 1.1 release notes, attached to yesterday's 1.1
announcement?

http://subversion.tigris.org/svn_1.1_releasenotes.html

"There's no formal roadmap or timeframe for future Subversion releases.
However, the consensus among developers is that the "next big feature"
will be exclusive locking (reserved checkouts). This feature will
hopefully appear in Subversion 1.2, assuming no database schema changes
are necessary. Design discussion is still underway."

That answers your 2nd question. And as for your 1st question,
svn:externals *already* allows links between different repositories.
