i hope you don't take this the wrong way, but i don't think you grasp  
how {node_revisions} currently works.  you get the overhead of the  
JOIN on {node_revisions} no matter what (though as David points out,  
this is mostly free, since we rarely/never try to WHERE or ORDER BY  
on things from {node_revisions}).  the only overhead of this change  
is the extra rows in the {node_revisions} table, and the thread is  
already discussing interesting ways to limit/reduce *that* overhead  
for sites that care about such things.
