This is consistent with the data I'm seeing in WC .svn/entries files.
(There's no reason to duplicate this piece of data.)

That's my understanding, yes. svn_wc_copy2() opens the existing
.svn/entries administrative file, and then gets the svn_wc_entry for the
directory being operated upon:

  SVN_ERR (svn_wc_adm_probe_open3 (&adm_access, NULL, src_path, FALSE, -1,
                                   cancel_func, cancel_baton, pool));
  ...
  SVN_ERR (svn_wc_entry (&src_entry, svn_wc_adm_access_path (adm_access),
                         adm_access, FALSE, pool));

Erik Hülsmann pointed out that it would be nice if files inherited the repos
setting of their parent directory. I have not confirmed whether this is
occuring for this case in the source code (though take_from_entry() and
svn_wc__atts_to_entry() in libsvn_wc/entries.c look promising).
