First, because "svn diff -c A,B,C,D" should show the change which would
be merged by "svn merge -c A,B,C,D".

Second, from first principles: if "svn diff -c A,B,C,D" means "show me
the composition of changes A, B, C, and D", then it's pretty obvious
what changes we should be composing, and it's pretty obvious what base
we should be applying those changes to for context.

What other meaning did you have in mind?
