FWIW, the UNIX98-specs say the following:

-- snip --
	The file named by path is a directory, and either the calling
	process does not have appropriate privileges, or the
	implementation prohibits using unlink() on directories. 
-- snap --

There's no reference to EISDIR in the description of unlink(2).
