"The copy source node" is dereferenced into the filesystem, not into the
dupmfile. (It may not even be in the dumpfile, if -r was used.)
Therefore, it's relevant not whether a proplist section is present, but
whether the corresponding node-rev in the filesystem the dump is being
applied to has properties.

Next, the answer should be the same for the copyfrom case as it is for
the svn_fs_path_change_modify case. And it will depend, at least, on
whether a proplist is present for the node in the dumpfile (no proplist
=> no change) and on whether a Prop-delta: header is present (whether
the new proplist patches or replaces the preexisting proplist).

That's my understanding, at least.
