If I needed to revert something that was committed, this proposed way is
the first place I would look for that ability. If I didn't find it
there, I would assume the software didn't offer that feature.

I've never needed to revert one of my SVN repositories, but I've needed
to in Perforce twice now in a week. I'm much more comfortable with TSVN,
and very new to Perforce, so when I tried to revert via the changelist
view in Perforce and didn't find that option, I ended up doing the whole
thing manually. :(

As far as "safety" of a revert, this is very different than the
situation I've mentioned a couple times in the past. A revert in the
repository can always be undone. (If I revert revision 13 to what was
12, it becomes 14 and 13 remains the one you reverted). Safety is only
an issue in things like a working copy revert which can't be undone.
That's why I've been trying to stress the importance of making the WC
revert dialog select NONE by default, not all.
