Essentially, yes, that's the problem. PREV does in fact mean "the
last revision in which the object changed", but it gets that
information by examining the entry of a wc object. In other words, at
the moment, PREV, BASE, and COMMITTED must all be used on wc objects.

Maybe we could file an enhancement... certainly we could do an extra
network round trip to discover the last-changed-revision of a URL.
