The windows binaries that you downloaded are not "the subversion 1.2
release".

The subversion 1.2 release is a tree of source code. It can be
linked against any version of BDB on any operating system. The
subversion project doesn't release binaries.

The *particular* binaries you downloaded happen to use BDB 4.3. You
could have downloaded different binaries. You could have built
subversion on windows yourself.

I agree, though: the "installer" binary that you downloaded should
prominently declare that it uses BDB 4.3, and explain what it means.
We should tell the person who made that installer.
