I can somewhat agree here - update implies contacting the repository for
changes. You have not submitted any changes and therefore cannot

There is still a bug here though. If you play around with the scenario
enough you'll find that the metadata still tracks the directory as
"added" even though it no longer exists. I forget the exact details,
but it can get in an annoying state.

The real issue is that you can replace "manually delete" with any 3rd
party tool that is not svn-metadata aware and likes to delete or move
things around. There are all sorts of nasty things you get to run into
in these scenarios.
