According to my knowledge there is no policy that this has to be so.
The notice and license file MUST be in the src tar ball, but there is
no policy requiring them to be in SVN.

The policy (or rather faq, [1]) states that:

"In particular, every artifact distributed must contain appropriate
LICENSE and NOTICE files."

To the best of my knowledge an svn tag is not an artifact which is distributed.

Again, to my knowledge there is no policy that states that this MUST
or SHOULD be so.
