So if you rename a file from within dired, dired displays the same
file name?  If you change its permissions from within dired, it
displays the same permissions?  If you move it or delete it from
within dired, it stays there as if it existed before?  If you copy to
some other directory under dired, the files don't arrive in the
display there?

Could you substantiate your claim?  I can't seem to find any basic
dired operation that does _not_ update the view (except that when you
are renaming files in a sorted buffer, the buffer does not get
resorted.  But the name is still changed in the display).
