Because $Rev$ and $URL$ are two different _values_ and $Rev$ and
$LastChangedRevision$ are two different _names_ for the same value.

Because you might not want to have all keywords expanded, just because
you wanted some keywords expanded. For example, you imported CVS files
and you want the existing $Rev$ maintained, but the $Author$ to reflect
the name of the user who imported the files...
