There is none. The term "revision" is defined in the Subversion book
unambiguously:

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn-book.html#svn.basic.in-action.revs

It also explains the "mixed-revision" working copies, although it does not use
this term.

Since you make the above flawed assumption ("This is an ambiguity about the
word "revision"), all you subsequent reasoning is false, as has been shown
multiple times during the recent discussions.

Heh? "Worse is better"? I don't think this as a good design paradigm...
