Date, not data.

Date based searches work by doing a binary search through the
revisions, looking at the svn:date revprop. If the svn:date revprops
are not increasing along with the revision, this search doesn't work.
If you take two existing repositories and combine them together via
svnadmin load you'll likely end up with out of order svn:date
properties. Everything will continue to work, except for date based
searches.

It turns out to be pretty tricky, IIRC, but it is possible.
