Issue #3651 is wrong. This command line should error out in the same way it
would had "HEAD" been any other revision. HEAD is, by definition, the
youngest revision in the repository. Our revisions are immutable with
respect to key changes, and therefore cannot be the target of any write
operation (excepting revprop changes).
