A difference in behaviour between CVS/Subversion

Folks,

forgive me if this has been asked before. I've lurked on and off for a
while and never seen it discussed.

One feature of CVS which is nice is that you can checkout a directory
structure, and then check out other directories into it and seamlessly
treat it as one project by doing updates and commits at the top-level.
Each file correctly knows where it lives in the CVS depot.

If you do the same with Subversion, the commit or update doesn't descent
into the separately checked out directories. As such, you need to do
(let's say) 4 commits which creates intermediate revisions which won't
build.

Was this a deliberate decision?

Thanks in advance,

Nick Glencross
