Well, it's not a matter of "choosing" 1. The behavior which 1
proposes to document is already present in Subversion. Documenting
that behavior isn't an endorsement of bugginess, if we decide that the
behavior is indeed buggy. In fact, documentation is an opportunity to
*clarify* that we consider it a bug and that we might change it in the
future.

So either the door is shut on 2 already or it's not. Choosing 1 will
not shut it further, as far as I can see.
