I agree on the former case (elements but no commitables). However, if
we stick with the current behavior (which is what you describe), we
have this inconsistency, which I find confusing:

macbook-2:/tmp/x/w glasser$ $SVN diff
macbook-2:/tmp/x/w glasser$ $SVN diff --changelist typo
svn: Try 'svn help' for more info
svn: no such changelist 'typo'
macbook-2:/tmp/x/w glasser$ $SVN ci
macbook-2:/tmp/x/w glasser$ $SVN ci --changelist typo
macbook-2:/tmp/x/w glasser$
