You're saying that someone may want to check in a ._ file. This can
be done on a non-HFS+ partition. But someone who will check out that
on a HFS+ partition will probably get an error or some other kind of
clash, because ._ files are handled in a special way there.

What I'm thinking of is that there's the same kind of problems with
case-insensitive file systems. If someone checks in "foo" and "Foo"
from a case-sensitive file system, what happens when one checks out
these files on a case-insensitive file system? Does Subversion have
some workaround and could it be used for ._ files (on HFS+) too?
