Apache shouldn't care where it gets the content it serves. You can burn a
FSFS repo to CD and serve a read-only repo from there. (That won't work
with BDB because writes are made to the repo to "read" it. It's the biggest
reason I use FSFS, to avoid spurious incremental backups of unchanged data.)

The only thing I've seen cause me problems on a Windows share are Windows
compressed help files (CHM extension) because IE is used as the viewer and
it's security model thinks shares are as bad as the outside Internet,
instead of the same threat level as the local hard disk. But that's totally
unrelated to Subversion and Apache. That's just IE insanity.

But it's that kind of experience that can make people suspect other
software of making similar distinctions.
