No, because that would be a Lie too.

We don't *know* that we have revision 10 of the directory; we merely
created it by committing the deletion. In the general case, suppose
our commit created revision 15. It would be a lie to say we have
revision 15 of the directory after the commit; what if someone added
a file to the directory in revison 12?

We are only allowed to bump working-copy directory revisions in
updates, or when we commit a propchange to a directory.
