That's not how I read the following fragment from log-cmd.c:

  else if (opt_state->start_revision.kind == svn_opt_revision_unspecified)
    {
      const char *target = APR_ARRAY_IDX (targets, 0, const char *);

      /* If the first target is a URL, then we default to HEAD:1.
         Otherwise, the default is BASE:1. */
      if (svn_path_is_url (target))
        opt_state->start_revision.kind = svn_opt_revision_head;
      else
        opt_state->start_revision.kind = svn_opt_revision_base;

Defaulting to HEAD for targets in the WC would be broken, because you've
no gurantee that the path still exists in the repository.
