Subversion has a much better designed repository ("filesystem") that doesn't tend to accumulate a bunch of bizarre cruft the way CVS does. Exporting a repository from Subversion and importing it into another source control system is *much* easier than doing it from CVS.
That said, I don't think that using Subversion as an intermediate step for a few years would have helped that much.
It does sound, though, like you're trying to force Git to act like a centralized VCS. If that's really what you want, I don't think Git was the right choice.
