Well, for one thing, because export uses many of the same lower level methods
(if I remember correctly); I know for sure that the keyword expansion code is
used identically in both. To some extent, 'export' is implemented like
'checkout' without saving the .svn files (not really, but the implementations
are clearly parallel in overall structure).

But more importantly, historically when this topic has come up, it was usually
in the desire to have a $HEAD$ keyword in *ordinary* working copies (which is
why the FAQ entry exists in the first place). The case of 'export' has not
received nearly the same amount of attention.
