The simple answer is that the http interface presented by mod_dav_svn is
primarily intended for access by Subversion clients only, and the
extremely minimal extra features supplied for the sake of humans are
really just to allow people to confirm that an URL really is a
functioning Subversion repository.

For true browsing functionality, users are directed to one of the many
3rd party projects which present a richer human-oriented web interface:
<http://subversion.tigris.org/links.html#browsers>.
