I work this way too. ;-)

But no prefix is really needed this way too. You can always clone each plugin independently:

git-svn clone https://<repo path>/trunk/<your plugin> 

and have clean history tree for every plugin.

You can't work with svn branches and tags but I don't think it is big problem since you can do branch work with git. As for tags it is not very often operation.
