Not sure I follow. The WC should be a reflection of the repository
plus the user's changes since the last commit/update. Unless users
are going a long time between commits (or not committing before
undertaking a "risky" change), I don't see what this would gain you.

Or are you talking about using a backed-up WC to take the repository
back in time if something bad got committed into it? If that's the
case, svn already has the tools available to bring an old revision
back up to HEAD.
