I disagree with both of you! ;)

I think we should always keep all revisions by default (even if we  
hide most of the UI to see/use them), and make site admins who think  
they want them off go out of their way to prune/disable them.  The  
performance cost is negligible except for sites that care enough  
about performance to know their way around a few admin UI screens.   
The potential usability benefits of being able to say "oh yeah, just  
enable core's diff.module and grant some revision permissions to your  
editor role, and you'll be able to see all the changes anyone ever  
made to any of the nodes on your site".
