But you're not actually required to follow that human convention of
creating /tags /branches and /trunk. You can have a flat structure and
subversion won't care. You can just:

svn copy [SRC] [DST]

and set DST to be prefixed with "tag-" or whatever suits you and
subversion won't care.

Whether people will commit to that tag or not is another matter
altogether but pre-commit hooks can easily solve that.
