Because usually the 'schema' portion of the URL indicates the protocol:

     http://
     svn://

And in this case, it's still the 'svn' protocol being spoken over an
ssh tunnel. (The only thing that svn+ssh:// and file:// have in common
is that they both open the repostiory database directly as the user
which owns the process.)
