Well, if the file is in the repository you can still get it out. I really don't see anything broken here. Because something doesn't work the way you think it should I really don't think means it's a bug.

I really like svn. I use it everyday.
But I really dislike 'svn rm', because I make the mistake everyday. I always want to remove something from the repository and use it, but end up deleting the file on the local machine. Especially bad when I just added the file, or there are changes on it I have not saved yet.
I have come to think of it more as a bug than a feature. I think 'svn rm' should do just that -- rm from the repository rather than the local file as well.
