RE: MOD_DAV_SVN + SVNSERVE_WRAPPER + file system rights

Correct, default SSH port is not open on the corporate firewall. I am sure there are workarounds, however having contractual obligations not sure I should try hard to be unorthodox.

SSH + SVN is my favourite and will stay with it as the primary access method. If I could top it with HTTP access using the existing Unix authentication and authorization framework, I would be more than happy. After all Unix works for tens of years, why to change it???

Other alternative would be to force Apache to spawn MOD_DAV_SVN processes as the authenticated user, wonder if it is possible, or has any inadvertent complications.
