Isn't that how it works now? Here is Julian's message that started this thread:

"The current situation without this work is that many pristine texts
are not deleted when they become unreferenced, and they accumulate in
the pristine store until the user runs "svn cleanup". I think that is
not good enough even for an initial release."

FWIW, I agree with you that using cleanup seems acceptable to me.
