Why would these need to be unversioned but in the repository? Put them
in normally, and if they never change, how is it different from
keeping them in the repo, unversioned?

Have your build manager put them into a "release" tag which no one
else is allowed to commit to, or place the items on a fileserver.

This would require a very large change to Subversion - basically,
you're asking for "svn obliterate" here, which I think is under
consideration but involves a very large amount of work.

This sounds like it could get real messy and provide the potential for
work to be lost.
