This feature was, in fact, not omitted at all. However, since
Subversion does NOT change *anything* in your files unless you ask it
to, this feature is disabled by default, and you must enable it on a
file-by-file basis.

Have you read the Subversion Book? It talks all about keyword
substitution and how to use it right *here*:
