I question putting them in the "svn:" namespace, since Subversion isn't
directly involved in the editing of text files.

Some editors recognize this kind of control in the form of special source
code comments. Moving this information to Subversion properties would mean
that editors would need to link the Subversion libraries to access them.

Instead, I would suggest putting source style information in a separate
file so that users of any version control system could access it.
