It's not useless, because you can't habituate to a command you don't
run often. Therefore, this protects you if you accidentally typed
"revert" when you meant to type "someothercommand" -- in those cases
where "someothercommand" is one of those commands usually used with an
implicit '.' target.

This is subtly different from the kind of habituation you're talking
about.

(Of course, if you _always_ give an explicit target to every svn
command you run, then this would give no protection. But most people
don't use svn like that.)
