Yes, it's possible. Is it good or bad, easy or hard to maintain?
That's up to you - how much time you have to devote to it, what (if
any) tools/scripts you can put together to help, your comfort level
with Subversion, etc.

My big question is why version 1 and version 2 aren't branches of the
same project, but instead kept so separate.

How many repositories do you want? You use svnadmin create once per
repository, and svn mkdir any number of times per repository. I think
you're looking at a single repository here, so you would use svnadmin
create to create the repository "root" itself.

If you haven't read it yet, the book is very helpful. http://svnbook.org/
