No one else would see it with externals either, except that you wrote a custom tool to analyze the externals, see if a newer revision of the original exists, and show that to the user. If you can do that with externals, you can do that with copies too. (Use "svn log --stop-on-copy" to find out where the copy came from, then see if there are newer revisions of that.)
