For me the biggest problem is that it results in a working copy that is
unrecoverable using svn commands.

I don't really know what the correct action is - if a non-recursive
command is issued on something that *requires* recursion to be
successful do you ignore the command line and recurse or fail
gracefully?

I'll leave that decision to you guys :D
