Yes, there's no way to do that with "svn import".
I doubt you have admin access to the vendor repository, but if you do, or can get the admins to help you, you can "svnadmin dump" their repo and "svnadmin load" it into yours. If you don't care to have their whole history, you can just get the HEAD revision.
This only helps for the initial import, however. Not sure how you would obtain future updates from their repository and retain properties.
