difference between working tree and actual tree

In notes/wc-ng-design the description of working tree and actual tree is as

 * WORKING: The tree that represent's the user's view of the WC with their
     local modifications (assuming the user told Subversion about these
     modifications with "svn add" etc. as required). In implementation, the
     WORKING tree has the structure and properties recorded in the WC, and
     the file content present on the local disk. (If a file cannot be
     accessed because the tree structure on the local disk is incompatible,
     this is an error, known as an "obstruction".)

 * ACTUAL: The tree on the local disk, ignoring Subversion
     administrative directories and other nodes that Subversion has
     knowingly put there such as conflict reject files, and regarding
     every node as having no Subversion properties.

My understanding is that actual tree is the same as working tree except that
the former does not include subversion-about data(such as subversion adm data,
conflict data, subversion properties and so on), is it right?
