Yes.

You have to commit first. The 'revert to this revision' does a reverse
merge of the changes you want to revert. So after the 'revert to this
revision', your working copy is still at HEAD, but has all the changes
you made in 486-488 undone and your working copy shows you those as
local modifications.
