I guess someone who is unconvinced of the need for "tags" would ask why you
consider this a problem - given that it's never necessary to check out the
entire repository tree, "space in the repository tree" is effectively an
unlimited resource.

Why do you feel that it is a bad thing that this (virtual) tree has lots of
data in it? Granted, if badly organised, it could become confusing to
navigate - but then, Subversion has powerful ways of organising it. Or is
there another aspect that concerns you more?
