My instinct is that a VCS-based source package format is not useful for
Subversion, and hence would have no impact on svn-buildpackage. People
using Subversion would need to convert to a different VCS to use VCS-based
packages. (You really need the repository to live in the local directory.
CVS would have the same issue. You could do a VCS-based package on top of
RCS, though. *pause* I really hope no one feels the need.)
