It makes more sense to make vc-update do a pull operation for DVCS's,
and make vc-pull an alias for vc-update if necessary, instead of making
vc-pull a separate new VC operation and leaving vc-update an undefined
operation for those systems.

Yeah, I was wondering about where the "merge-news" terminology came
from.  In CVS, it does "cvs up" on the marked files, so I assumed it
meant "an operation where you update individual files".  Since that
would be left undefined for DCVS's, that would allow vc-update a way to
distinguish between the two cases, no?
