In a shallow and superficial way, yes.

/me ducks :-)

Seriously, when I revert a change, it doesn't necessarily mean I'm not
working on that problem anymore, it just means I'm undoing a false
start. I don't think it would be very intuitive for 'revert' to
unlock things the way 'commit' does -- they're not really symmetrical,
because they don't both mean "I'm done with this problem now.".
