So if I'm do:

$ bzr merge
conflict in foo.bar
$ hack-hack foo.bar
$ bzr remove foo.bar  # Ooops! It's mistake! I don't want this!!!
$ bzr revert foo.bar  # all changes in foo.bar lost

So before revert I need to save current foo.bar in some place and then
restore content after revert. And merge history for foo.bar will be 
preserved? It's right?

I did not know this fact.
