svn log vs. svn proplist

Can someone help me understand a difference in
behavior between svn log and svn proplist? It
would be helpful to me to understand the reasoning
behind these differences so I can learn to predict
(and explain to others) how svn will work.

"svn log" with no path arguments performs the useful
function of displaying commit log messages for files
under version control within a working directory.

"svn proplist" with no path arguments seems to be
a no-op. "svn proplist *" tries to show properties
for all files in the current directory, which outputs
an error message and stops when it finds a file
which is not under version control (like emacs
backup files -- .py~, etc.)

I can display the properties of files under version
control with

svn list | xargs -iXX svn proplist "XX"

but I confess this was not the first thing I tried.
