This is perfectly fine.

Just make sure the the permissions and umasks are set such that any new
files created within the repository directory by the either server are
read-writeable by the other server.

Practically, this means ensuring a umask of either 0007 or 0002 is in use by
both servers, and having the repository group-owned by some group that the
users that apache and svnserve processes run as are members of, and setting
setgid bit (chmod g+s) on the db directory of the repository and any
subdirectories.

Max.
