Yes, it's intended behavior.

Think about it: there's no way that 'svn switch' knows that the two
URLs are really the same repository, or same location. 'svn switch',
therefore, operates exactly the same way as 'svn update', 'svn merge',
and 'svn diff': it compares two URLs, and applies the differences to
your working copy.

However, maybe the user might be able to give a hint here. Maybe some
optional switch could be used to mean "just rewrite all of the urls
within .svn/entries files, and do nothing else." What do others
think?
