I had a short discussion with one of the developers and he confirmed that
this behaviour was intended for now, based on an issue with the current
design ( the call to open_root(), as you already noticed ).

The behaviour is not compatible with the same functionality in mod_authz_svn
though. In my opinion this is an issue to be solved. I'll look more deeply
into this.
