I think this second example is wrong. My understanding is that if the
path doesn't have an explicit pegrev (@), then it defaults to HEAD.

Let me generalize: my understanding is that for *any* command:

  * URLs pegrevs default to HEAD, unless specified by @N
  * wc-path pegrevs default to BASE, unless specified by @N
  * operational revs default to pegrev, unless specified by -rN
