Subversion doesn't have client-side hooks, and none are planned
(security / portability concerns, mainly).

Okay, I lied -- Subversion does support external diff programs today.

However, I don't see how client-side hooks would be a good solution
for what you want, which is fundamentally repository-oriented.

A pre-commit hook can enforce the tags behavior you want. (I just
looked for an example in our tools/ and contrib/ directories and
didn't find one, but a contribution would be very welcome...)

No, it's not implemented yet.
