This sounds good to me too. What UI would you expect for this?

There is already a ‘--change’ option (instead of ‘--revision’) for the
‘diff’ command:

  -c ARG, --change=ARG  Select changes introduced by the specified

If a revisionspec could identify a shelve, maybe with ‘shelf:N’, then
this would be a good UI:

    bzr diff --change shelf:3

to see the change in shelf 3 without comparing against the branch state.

If you like that, can you please find and/or create a bug report to put
your request in?
