How about the following tweaks to the Purpose and opening of the Description in 
the help docs:

Purpose: Revert files in the working tree to match those in a previous revision.

Description:
   Giving a list of files will revert only those files.  Otherwise, all files
   will be reverted.  If the revision is not specified with '--revision', the
   last committed revision is used.  The revert affects only the working tree
   and not the version history.
