1. What happens when someone creates a tag (aka svn copy) in another
svn client? Should one remove the value, or leave it as is?

2. It duplicates information that is already in repository.
If it were just configuration value (e.g. "see tags there")...., but
it lists all nn tags.

3. The property value on /tomcat/trunk was wrong.

 - it should not have been added there. You wouldn't list 7.0.x tags on trunk.
 - /tomcat/tc7.0.x/branches is not a branch

A branch would be /tomcat/tc7.0.x/branches/<name>

Also message in this commit did not reflect what it did.

4. When I performed a trunk->7.0.x merge (see another email from
yesterday) this revision caused property update conflict on
7.0.x/trunk. Maybe because of 3. above.

5. What you, personally, use it for?
What are your practical benefits? Seeing tag names in history?

If you really use it  and will add all TOMCAT_7_0_x tags to
/tomcat/tc7.0.x/trunk, and will maintain it onwards, I personally do
not mind.
