Subversion Configuration for multiple access methods

I am going to replace our SCM platform, VSS >:((, with Subversion :)))
I have a few questions before I start (anyway, after several months of test
without any problem !!!).
1. Reading the manual, I understand that there is no problem having the
   same repository accessed concurrently through Apache and svnserve.
   Is there any problem in configuring Apache with multiple Location with
   the same SVNParentPath, the same AuthzSVNAccessFile but with different AuthType ?
   My problem is that I will run subversion in a local intranet on Windows
   platform so for company employees I will use mod_auth_sspi for authentication.
   Consultants will have a separate domain for authentication and so I would
   create subversion users on a LDAP. So I need to configure a Location, say svn,
   with mod_auth_sspi to authenticate company employees and a second Location,
   svnldap, for consultants authentication.
   The result is that I can access the same subversion repositories with url
   http://servername/svn/repos or
   This means that I could have WC for the same repos but different "origin" all around.
   Besides concurrency issues on the server side, is there any issue related to
   WC management, I mean wrt update checks, revert etc. in such a mixed configuration ?
2. This is more a feature request. Using LDAP for authentication I cannot use
   the full DN of the user as an identifier in the AuthzSVNAccessFile, for
   group membership definition, because of "," separating DN documents. A way
   to escape "," could be useful.
3. I think the answer will be yes, but...Is is possible to switch from a BerkeleyDB
   repository to a fsfs and viceversa using svnadmin dump&load ?

Last but not least, subversion is really great !!

Thanks in advance,
