"inventory" is the list of all files in the working copy, classified
according to whether they are versioned or not.

"repository" is the storage of history.

As you see, these terms are mostly unrelated.

svn list/svn ls is a different thing. It lists the repository, NOT the
working copy. status lists _changes_ to working copy in both svn and
bzr. Subversion is not able to list the state of working copy, while bzr
uses inventory for that (though I now think merging it into status would
make sense).
