svn-book inconsistency?

Since I'm just learning SVN, this problem may be with me. But...

It seems that the svn-book.html (for 1.2) is inconsistent with regard to its use
(or not) of "trunk" in the examples. I've tried to use the book as a
project-side companion as I created my first project using SVN. I'm a past CVS
user. I've found myself making mistakes several times now with regard to the
use of "trunk".

I think what is happening is that some parts of book explicitly use
"myproject/trunk" (or the equivalent) in an example, and some parts don't. For
example, the "snv checkout" synopsis does NOT mention trunk.

I'm beginning to realize that the use of "trunk" is just a convention so the
documentation isn't wrong. But it would help eliminate confusion if it always
used "trunk" in all examples with possibly a note saying that the use of trunk
isn't strictly necessary.

I think I'm going to be VERY HAPPY with the switch from CVS to SVN!
