Not all revprops are created equal. Subversion has required a valid,
non-empty svn:date on every revision since before 1.0. I can sympathise
with your frustration, but it would really not serve anyone's best
interests if we changed that assumption 15 years down the road just
because there's a bug in some implementation of the protocol.

FWIW, in my experience GitHub have a good record of fixing such bugs
once they're reported.
