they shouldn't ^^'
if every commit was made with a detailed and easy-to-understand comment, you would know exactly what was changed in every revision. But because rather to find such, you could either search through every diff to find out if this was just a fixed line ending or a great change - or you could look at the sizes.
I think that's as important to know as the timestamp of the file.
