First, even if your mental model "is that of subversion", that doesn't
make it the same as the mental model of common TSVN users.

Second, I've read the subversion documentation. Things like, "Notice
that in general, revisions N and M of a file do not necessarily differ!"
indicate that the revision numbers don't store files, but something
else. It is quite easy to make the leap to a revision number storing a
"Change". Then when you look at things at that revision, SVN figures
out the current state by enumerating the relevant changes. In this
mental model, the revision IS the change and the change has not happened
"between revisions".
