Revert scheduled delete -- possible dataloss?

Does anyone consider this a dataloss bug?

$ cat foo
Original file
$ svn rm foo
D foo
$ echo New file > foo
$ svn revert foo
Reverted 'foo'
$ cat foo
Original file

Basically, I deleted a file, out a new copy of the file in place, and
then reverted the delete. The new file was just removed and the
pristine file put back.

I expected one of the following to happen:

1) Remove the schedule delete. svn st would now show the file as
modified. A second revert would get back the pristine file.
2) Fail because of an obstruction and require --force. In which case,
I would get behavior #1
