This is a very good point I'd forgotten about. However, currently the existing svn:externals all point to read-only svn:// URLs, and switching them to http:// would not change anything substantially. Subversion 1.5 lets you use relative URLs in svn:external, if you're willing to forgo compatibility with Subversion 1.4 clients.
