$ svn add foo.c
$ svn rm foo.c
$ svn commit

I'd say that /this/ sequence is as much a PITA as yours. :-)

Anyway: a "svn add" without a commit is strictly a WC operation, it
doesn't create any mutable nodes in the filesystem. Since you can't know
the sequence of edits during the commit, you could get the "add bar.c
with ancestor foo.c" before the "add foo.c", which is nonsense. Or do
you propose the WC keep track of such dependencies and tell the commit
editor about them somehow? Eek ...

An "svn cp" from a source that has been added but not committed can only
mean "cp; svn add". I hope.
