Question about commit/udpate inside externals

I have a repository which contains an external to another repository with a fixed revision number.
I noticed I can make modifications inside this external and commit the modifications.
"svn status" does not mention this particular state and "svn up" does not bring the external back to its fixed revision number.
What bothers my is that doing a checkout of the repository will get me to a different state but doing "svn status" and "svn up" on my working copy does not alert me of that.
Maybe it is just a bad idea to edit and commit inside externals?
