Defaults of 'svn diff' not understood

Dear all,

collaborating with others I really like subversion. However, there is
one issue I do not understand; see the log of the following action:

komsys-pc-ruf:PAPER04!62> svn diff paper.tex
komsys-pc-ruf:PAPER04!63> svn stat -v paper.tex
               43 42 ruf paper.tex
komsys-pc-ruf:PAPER04!64> svn update paper.tex
UU paper.tex
Updated to revision 59.

The problem:
I am in a working copy. My colleagues have done some commits.
Before I update my local copy. I would like to see the diff'erence.

I assume I can achieve this functionality by running:

    svn diff -r BASE:HEAD paper.tex

But what is the reason that the latter form is not the default
behaviour of 'svn diff'?

Thanks for any enlightenment.
