Replacing only long keywords

I've a problem with keyword expansion. In Latex e.g. constructs like
$Rev$ or $Id$ aren't unusual. Because this I would like to have a switch
to expand only the long form of keywords, because they are much more
uncommon than the short forms, to prevent unintended replacing of this

How do you think about this proposal. The Debian maintainer of subversion
thinks it's not necessary[1], but in a discussion in a german newsgroup
someone agreed me[2].

Regards, Jörg.
