Deleting files from revs

Let's say hypothetically you delete some files from the middle of the
sequence of files in repository/db/revs or repository/db/revprops...what
happens? Do you break your entire repository?

If you have a million revisions of your work in the repository and you
decide you don't need all changes more than a certain amount of time old. If
you simply go and delete, say, the first 5000 files, I'm guessing you don't
just remove the logs of those changes and versions, but rather break your
repository because those files store diffs rather than the entire set of
files, right?

Is there a way that Subversion accounts for people wanting to get rid of
several changes and make, say, revisions 1 through 10,000 merged into one
file representing the state at revision 10,000 only...do you understand what
I'm saying? I'd guess (even with Subversion's efficient storage) that there
are people who don't need outdated version info beyond a certain revision or
date, and would like to retrieve some of that disk space...

What goes in repository/db/transactions? It always seems to be empty...

Thanks.
