Yes, but implementing a good data-integrity system can be quite hard.

I did some research myself and noticed that the revision properties
files (located in the db/revprops directory) aren't well guarded. For
example if you change some characters in the revision's log text
(keeping its total length the same) it will NOT be noticed by "svnadmin

I would expect those files also to be protected by some hashing
