That would work for the WC base tree, but is not good enough for handling the local modifications. Consider if the user has made local modifications inside B, and the server sends "move A, C; delete B". If the client told the user:
I've updated A OK (moved it to C).
... that would be a horrible experience. And it would be arbitrary (from the user's POV) whether she got this conflict or not, depending on which one the server decided to move and which one the server decided to delete.
The client *does* need to know that B is in fact being moved to C, so that it can offer to transfer my local modifications from B to C.
