You can setup your client's configuration to do just this. However,
this is CLIENT specific and not server specific. That is, if you move
to a different machine, you'd have to set it up again.

You need to look at
<http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.1/ch07.html#svn-ch-7-sect-1.3.2> of
the book. Look at the "enable-auto-props" setting. Then, if you're on
Unix, look at the bottom of the file $HOME/.subversion/config. If
you're on Windows, look at %USERPROFILE%\Application
Data\Subversion\config. You'll see the template to do exactly what you
want.

I'm currently writing a hook that will prevent a commit from
completing if files don't have the properties (and the values) that
you expect. The user would then have to add those properties in order
to commit their changes.
