Because a move is - currently - modelled as a Delete + Add, which is
what the new client is receiving. Because of the Add, it also needs
the new content.

This is currently being worked on ('Implement true renames'), but it's
a multi-stage project which needs a lot of work before effects can be
seen on the client side.

Erik.
