Not really: the directory wasn't deleted; it was moved.

Though of course, Subversion does not have a "move" operation internally.
"svn move" is implemented as a "copy" operation, followed by a "delete" of
the original version.

And though they're planning on implementing a true "move", the semantics are
complex -- if something is moved out of the region of the file tree that is
in your WC, Subversion has no way to know for sure whether or not you want
your WC to be re-targeted to move with it. By default, they will probably
have to assume that the WC is to keep the same root unless the user does a
"svn switch".
