Yes, that makes sense... (I had the same thought yesterday)
But then I start thinking... where does it make sense...
'svn cp', no... doesn't work because changelists can't handle directories.
I think we should really look at whether we can make changelists on directories in a sensible way. Then this would be a really useful feature!
The reason we disabled changelists on directories shortly before releasing 1.5 (if I remember correctly), was that we couldn't define how they were supposed to work on directories. And denying its use on directories would allow refining it later without breaking backwards compatibility./
Maybe we can enable it now if we can get it to work consistently. (Things start making more sense when you look at things using operation roots, like we do for the 4th tree).
