A revision will not get elided just because no changes are visible in it. I was talking about per-node changes. To quote again from my original mail,
"The ability to commit a new revision with no changes is fine -- a new revision number in Subversion does not imply a change."
Similarly, the ability to see or extract a revision with no (visible) changes is and will remain perfectly fine.
