For (2), consider the following case however:

# svn co -N $REPOS/trunk/foo

where foo contains a few files and some directories.
If you subsequently want to pull down a subdirectory, bar, the following
currently works:

# svn up bar

In this case bar exists in the repository but not in the WC.
Maybe this use case is not so important any more, but I used this often
with a 1.4 client to simulate a simple sparse WC.
