svn copy question (Is it always 'with history'?)

>svn help cp
copy (cp): Duplicate something in working copy or repository,
remembering history.
usage: copy SRC DST

   SRC and DST can each be either a working copy (WC) path or URL:
    WC  -> WC:   copy and schedule for addition (with history)
     WC  -> URL:  immediately commit a copy of WC to URL
     URL -> WC:   check out URL into WC, schedule for addition
     URL -> URL:  complete server-side copy;  used to branch & tag

I notice that for the URL -> WC copy it says 'schedule for addition'
but does not have the '(with history)' like it does for the WC  -> WC
copy.

I would hope that the history is preserved in all cases, and if so,
perhaps the help string could be changed so the implicit suggestion
that history might not be preserved isn't there.
