No. All this is saying is that you can't specify the revision by reference to
a working-copy path with "BASE" or "COMMITTED" or "PREV"; you can still specify
a working copy path and "HEAD", or you can specify (a WC path or URL) with (a
revision number or date). Plenty of options!

Er, well, indeed, it won't be an issue if you have some other way of setting
them ... but then this won't stop you from setting any rev-props you like even
if you do use the normal "svn propset --revprop" syntax.
