A tag in Subversion is just a copy - after all, Subversion is just a very
enhanced filesystem. So, in order to do something to a tag, you have the
whole Subversion filesystem commands at your disposal. If you use merge (as
already suggested by someone else) or delete and copy over a new version is
mostly up to you.
In the scenario you described, there is also the chance that iteration_1 is
better represented when it is considered a branch rather than a tag. It
depends a bit on your workflow and how you wrap you brain around it.
