No, that is not going to happen.  Id tags make it extremely hard to
manage collaborative development across multiple subversion trees,
such as when a vendor keeps a local development branch on their
own subversion instance and needs to generate clean diffs for
submission back to us.  It is also pointless to keep revision metadata
in the file when the rest of the content may have changed.  -1
