book description of mixed revision working copy looks weird

   from here,
http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.basic.in-action.html, the
list of the four states a file can be in, there's this:

"Unchanged, and out of date

"The file has not been changed in the working directory, but it has
been changed in the repository. The file should eventually be updated
in order to make it current with the latest public revision. An svn
commit of the file will do nothing, and an svn update of the file will
fold the latest changes into your working copy."

   i'm hoping i haven't misunderstood things all this time, but to say
something is "out of date" in the above context doesn't necessarily
mean that the file's contents have *changed*, only that it's revision
number in the repository is now larger than the one in the working
copy, no? but that doesn't mean that the file is necessarily
different, although that's the interpretation one might take away from
the above.
