Subversion keyword expansion only supports the keywords described in
the documentation.

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.2/
svn.advanced.props.html#svn.advanced.props.special.keywords

Note that Subversion doesn't really have a "tag name"; if you're in a
tag, then the tag name is part of the URL, and $URL:$ is one of the
supported keywords.
