To be a *little* more prolix, here... :-)

Dirent props are redundant with other kinds of properties only if the
repository does not support hard links.

With hard links (i.e., multiple names/paths for the same entity),
dirent properties allow Subversion to carry information that cannot be
carried any other way -- for example, the 8.3-style name to use in
place of the repository name, when necessary.

So they have not been jettisoned, but I think we've sort of tacitly
decided that hard links and dirent properties would be worked on at
the same time. We shouldn't start one until we know we're also doing
the other.
