Yes, it is correct. The revision is unique for the whole repository.
When listing the repository contents, you may see the most recent
revision number that was created in those paths, but the highest
revision number is the current one, regardless of where you go in the
repository. The subversion guide explains this nicely
(http://svnbook.red-bean.com/en/1.4/svn.basic.in-action.html#svn.basic.i
n-action.revs).
