From what I read I understood that this was the case, if however SVN silently 'ignores' these types of permission that is fair enough, I guess the process runs as a super user, which would make sense (most server processes seem to want to have full power over their own process, which seems reasonable).
That's not possible because a Subversion repository is a database; there is not a one-to-one mapping between a file or directory in a repository and a file or directory on your server's hard disk.
