Yes, that makes sense.

Subversion doesn't know anything about process. It only cares about
version control. Process aspects are left to higher-level tools.

For example, Subversion is often tied to an issue tracker, with a
pre-commit hook that requires an issue number in the log message
and then checks the status if the issue to decide whether the
commit should be allowed according to policy.

Or people use hook scripts such as this one:

I've also seen custom Subversion clients written to support a
