That's a very good question!

The answer is: I'm not sure. I've been pondering this for a day or
two, and I can't decide. Does having a changeset-association make
something inherently "interesting" enough to be listed by 'svn
status'?

Maybe so. One argument is that somebody might associate a file with a
changelist, then not make any edits at all, then forget about the
whole event. Assume 'svn status' shows nothing at all. A month
later, the user starts editing the file for a different reason.
Suddenly the status listing shows the edited file as part of some
really old changelist, which is sorta yucky.
