IMHO in 2013 requiring admins to maintain a source tree to keep their 
individual systems up-to-date is a silly idea at best.

for large sites, having a source checkout that includes all revision 
history seems like a very good idea.  the other option being a download 
of an exported snapshot of the source tree w/o that history.  by be able 
to just submit an "svn diff" against your local check-out seems much 
more user friendly to the devs.
