I'm not sure, I think it has to do with security. One should check the docs... And if he found nothing conclusive, change the behavior to allow it.

rsync -n --delete --exclude='*~' -av repositories/
receiving file list ... rsync: The server is configured to refuse --dry-run (-n)
rsync error: requested action not supported (code 4) at clientserver.c(520)
rsync: read error: Connection reset by peer (104)

I don't know what's the rationale behind this restriction. But it better be good because it's a pain ;-)
