IIUC, the bzr server would be able to speak to svn clients. bzr
supports a centralized model perfectly fine along side a decentralized
model, so any current developers who want to continue using their svn
client can do so, and everyone else could use the bzr client to work

Right, but ideally the server would support the full distributed model
and users wold chose which client and models they are most comfortable
One option would be to promote the mirrors to official status, but
this is clunky because svn has a less complete model than a dvcs so
it's more difficult to go in that direction.
