I was also going to suggest that you should reconsider using a single
repository for everything. Not only would i solve the problem of
remote repository creation, but it would enable you to share code
between projects, should that need ever arise. If you have every
project in its own repository, you won't be sharing code between them
-- at least, not preserving history.

But since others have already made that suggestion and you've
rejected it, I'll move on to answering your question:

You mention you want to run mod_dav_svn on the NAS. This sounds like
a rather sophisticated NAS box, then, if it can run custom Apache
modules. Hopefully that means you can also run other web software on
the NAS box. There is a web-based repository administration tool
called SVNManager which may just do the trick for you. I haven't used
it, but it says it can create and delete repositories, and more, so
you should look into it:
