Sounds like a very reasonable way to go about organizing your
repository.

As long as you use "svn mv" to move the files around in your
repository you are in no danger of losing the history on those
files. Of course, even if you don't use svn mv the history won't be
lost, it just won't remain associated with the files you've moved.
