I look at it this way:

svn log -r5:8 describes revisions 5 to 8
svn diff -r5:8 describes what changed from revision 5 to 8

The contents of revision 5 itself contains the changes that made
revision 4 into revision 5. Those aren't changes that happened
between r5 and r8.

Or, if you like, 5 through 8 is a sequence of 4 numbers, but 8 minus
5 (the difference between them) is 3. It all works out.
