Unless there are other cases where revert really should fail without
--force (there aren't any yet, but there might be in the future), in
which case case the user has disengaged the safety because we added this

That sounds like a bad idea. --force is supposed to override safeties
(checks which would cause the command to fail), not make the command
work harder or otherwise change its functionality.
