I think that basically means you are going to need to add a resource
change listener that is watching for new files being added. When that
happens, you would have to check the status, do the revert etc. This
will have to be done for every new file that is added.

How are you planning to do #2? Where do you expect to get this file
from? Subversion will not have it anywhere.

I do not agree this is a flaw and I'd guess you have zero chance of
ever getting an API like that from the Subversion developers.
Statuses are generally calculated on the fly. For example, there is
no stored state that a file is modified. This is something it
determines by checking the file when you ask for the status.
Scheduled add, delete and replace are stored in the working copy and
Subversion gives you an API -- revert, to undo that.
