No, it should be a real, full text-base.

'svn diff' already notices when a file is schedule-add. If the file
is *also* locally modified, it will compare working file
vs. text-base. Otherwise, the text-base will be ignored, and the
working file will be compared to an empty stream. All of this
behavior already exists in 'svn diff'. (To witness it, try 'svn cp wc
wc', and run 'svn diff').

So the only thing you need to do here is make sure 'svn cp URL wc'
results in the exact same state as 'svn cp wc wc'. And that means a
full text-base is present.
