From my memory it would serve two groups of people;
* users typically are not committers but follow svn and don't want to switch 
to git. The experience is from the cvs->svn switch that many users took 
another couple of months to actually do a new checkout.

We also noted that we would support this behavior as getting 100% of the users 
of kde-svn to do a git checkout on day 1 is going to cause a lot of worries.

* translators that want to see the original docbook files should be able to 
still use svn for that.
I don't know if this is still accurate since afterwards I learned that there 
are scripts to parse a docbook and get all the individual strings out of that 
into .po files.  So why would a translator need a checkout of koffice/doc then?

* stuff like dirks dashboard would continue working without rewrite.
