nobody responded to my spattering of messages regarding the 
administrative interface that would allow you to designate this per each 
content type and set 2 optional criteria including the total number of 
criteria and the oldest date to keep to using 2 select boxes. The 
selections would of course also allow you to not keep revisions by 
saying "None".

A "Revision History" field group in admin/content/types/$type with:
Maximum number of previous revisions to keep: (Select Box with the 
following options: None, 1, 5, 10, 25, 100, Unlimited)
Delete revisions older than: (Select Box with the following options: 
Never/None, Today, 1 Week, 1 Month, 1 Year)

The valid concerns of both sides are resolved no? All without 
unnecessarily complicating the node creation form.
