Changed revprops of already mirrored revisions will not be updated,
you need to explicitly use the copy-revprops command to do it.
There's no way for svnsync to know that the revprops have been
tweaked, so it has to be handled at a higher level.

As for users being able to change revprops, that's only if you allow
them to. I'd suggest writing a pre-revprop-change that limits that
ability to the user you run svnsync as, honestly, you should also
limit write access to that user, as if anyone else starts making
commits to the destination repos you're in trouble, since you'll lose
the ability to continue syncing to it.
