This is correct. The copy operation is copying the tag as it appeared at the
revision specified (ie HEAD), not as at the last commit revision. In your
case, there's no difference.

No. You can look at the history of the tag ('svn log') to see what the last
change on the source was, though. I'm confused as to why the source copy
revision matters.
