Hm. On the contrary, I think it may emphasize a weakness:

  touch foo; svn add foo; svn ci # Rev 1
  svn cp foo bar; svn mv foo baz; svn ci # Rev 2
  svn up -r1
  svn log -r2 foo

With true renames, it would be possible (though it might require extra
information to be kept in the FS for efficiency) to uniquely identify
that <2,baz> is the right object to run that "svn log" operation on.
With only "cp,rm" renames, <2,bar> and <2,baz> look exactly the same.
