I still think this is the wrong approach.

"rev" has been defined in RFC2068. We can explain why relying on it is a 
bad idea, and suggest alternatives.

But excluding it from the base definition essentially allows re-defining 
it as extension meaning something else, and that would be bad if a 
recipient implements RFC2068.
