The revision number represents the number of changes that have been
made in the repository. Anything you change in the repository*
increments the revision number. Copying the trunk to a tag is a
change, therefore the revision number increases. It means you have a
record in the repository that this action took place, you can see who
did it, and you can read the log message to see why it was done.

* The exception is the properties of the revisions themselves, like
svn:author, svn:date, svn:log. You can configure Subversion to allow
you to edit these, and if you do, then you do so without incrementing
the revision number.
