Agree with you, yes.

This makes sense to me. In fact, such a change would make things
consistent with the very clear "Revert changes from this revision" entry
already existing in that context menu.

Which brings up a potential addition:
   "Show changes in this revision"
   "Blame changes in this revision"
   "Show changes in this revision as Unified Diff"
This is just food for thought -- I'm not sure it's better because though
it makes it very clear the unified diff entry gets pretty long.
