Migrate repository to different machine using copy ?

I have a quick question. I need to migrate repository from an old machine (SVN
1.4.3) to new machine (SVN 1.4.2). The new machine has lower version because
it's the one that comes with the distro (CentOS 5), while in the old machine
I compiled myself.

I read about the dump-load way to do migration. But, really, is there anything
that should prevent me from just doing:
1. NFS mount the directory of the old machine to new machine
2. Do "cp -a old_repo new_repo"

I am just curious if I can / can't do that.
