It doesn't make it impossible, just less straightforward.  By
straightforward I mean I can create a tag "version 1.2.3" that
contains only things that are actually in version 1.2.3, instead of
dragging along things that have nothing to do with that version.

Even if there's no technical barrier (seeing as svn realizes branches
and tags as copies anyway), to me it's a more natural mental model if
branches/tags actually correspond to a single artifact that will be /
has been released together.
