If you copy directory, your repository will only get barely bigger.
But that said, the feature you are asking for (which in my mind is
called "revision labelling") is a common request, and I think a good
feature to have. You can today set a custom property on your revision
that says, "My neat-O kychan-summoned name is BLARG". It's just that
harvesting that information from the repository after-the-fact is a
trifle difficult.
