Aha, that link makes things clear.

"Revert changes from this revision" has nothing to do with 'svn
revert'. It looks to me like it actually runs a merge command,
something like:

   'svn merge -r N:N-1 URL working-copy'

i.e. reverse-applies all the changes made in revision N to your working
copy, as local mods. If you then verify the local mods and commit, then
yes, the changeset has been "removed" from HEAD.
