I don't know of any "regulation" in this perspective, other than that 
PMCs are required to provide oversight for the projects they're 
managing, and that ideally, this should be done using "familiar" tools 
like mailing lists & SVN.

Given the abundance of tools for managing website content, I think the 
only remaining common denominator is: the de-facto standard "site 
publishing protocol" is committing a bunch of HTML files into an SVN 

There's a difference between storing site content in SVN, and how you 
manage site sources. I'm not advocating one scenario or another, but as 
long as the sources are properly oversighted due to mailing lists 
notifications, I reckon the requiredness of SVN is only because that's 
the common denominator in case of calamities: when site sources are 
stored in SVN, people can easily resurrect a site in case servers are 
swapped around. If the SVN repo isn't wedged, of course. ;)
