that is interesting concept but one that I don't  quite get 
- you would have different locations/namespaces pointing to 
the same target?
And these namespaces would define different type of access 
per whole groups?

I see I might have been a bit vague when said - service.
What I meant was, would one use separate namespace, eg:
   <Location />
     DirectoryIndex disabled
     DAV svn
     ForceType text/plain
     SVNReposName ......
for each project if the reason was - this helps finer access 
control. Or it does not and one namespace for all 
locations/projects does the same?
many thanks
