You can put anything you want in a commit message and cross reference it 
to anything else you want.  Subversion just doesn't enforce it unless 
you add a pre-commit hook.  For example, we use testtrack pro and every 
commit is required to have ticket number in a certain format in the 
commit message.

You can't get much more flexible than free-form text.  On the other 
hand, labels of the sort used as CVS tags come up once in a while (where 
you have the ability to apply multiple tags to the same set of 
file/revisons and move them around later) as something that would be 
nice but not really needed.
