Bad property name

Hi All

I tried to edit a revision property and forgot to specify the property
name, the current path was in a working copy:

> svn pe --revprop -r 13299 http://svn/svn

svn then started an editor with no content. After entering some text
saving it and leaving the editor it showed the following message:

svn: Bad property name: 'http://svn/svn'

Ofcourse subversion is right and I didn't want to set that property.
Instead I wanted to edit svn:log.

But I have two questions now:

1. Why does svn not complain if I try to edit a non-existing property?
My guess is that this is intentional so I can use an editor to create a
new property.

2. Why does it not check the property name before starting the editor?

Client is svn, version 1.3.1 (r19032), server is 1.2.1 (r15230).
