There's been lots of debate about this in the past, you can search the
list archives to read about it.

The rationale for the current behavior is consistency. For any
subcommand X, running 'svn X wc-path' will operate on the version of
wc-path sitting in your working copy, i.e. the BASE revision. So when
you run 'svn log foo.c', you're asking, "give me the change history of
the BASE revision of foo.c".
