To paraphrase your answer: "because".

Yeah, I know. It's also what you get when you specify HEAD: the tip. 
>> Use update -A to...
Yeah, I know, I've been removing sticky tags with update -A since I was knee 
high to a grasshopper. My question was deeper than that... [audible ooooo] :)
I think it's kind of a moot question at this point so I will retract it. HEAD 
is what it is. Changing it to be the name of trunk would break scripts from 
here to eternity.

That's because it *is* a garden variety version label.  The tip of the
trunk is what you get when you don't specify *any* revision or date.
Use update -A to get rid of the sticky HEAD version tag and you'll be
able to commit.
