Does that include untagged snapshots?

Are there cases where one or more files associated with a tagged version 
aren't in fact "locked down"? For example, if a file being worked on 
hasn't yet been committed to svn?

It is possible to look at either the files associated with a tagged 
version or the repository and to determine unambiguously what revision 
it was created at?
