That's not clear. The difference between what and what? "Ago" from when?

The syntax you suggested below allows you to request the difference between a
specified revision (number/date/keyword) and the revision N changes ago from
that. It doesn't, for instance, allow you to request the difference between N
and N+1 changes ago (from HEAD, BASE, or similar) which is what I imagine you
would want for the scenario you mentioned above.

Can you show how you would achieve your goal of easily iterating through the
changes to a file with your suggested syntax or another syntax?
