You can stick them all in the root of the repository if you want to.
Note that subversion lets you move files between directories, so you
don't have to pull hair at the very beginning.

One issue to consider would be whether you are trying to export the
documents in various formats from a hook script. If so, it might be
worthwhile to consider how the conversion works. (e.g. if all of the
files in one directory require a latex2html command and the others need
to be run with a lyx export, a two-directory layout might make sense.)

Another option would be to separate them by content (as in
"how-to/how-to_chapter01.sxw", "guide/...", etc.)
