Rather than having the current system, where in a question or answer the revision history link is the "Edited ago" text, wouldn't it be less confusing to add a link called "Revisions" or "Revision History" to the line of links that shows up on a question (the links for link, edit, flag, and so on.)?

Personally, I find having the revisions link under that line of text stating the time since the last edit too confusing.

It is somewhat obscure, but then, so are revisions.

Once learned (and I agree, it has to be learned) it is not a difficult convention to follow, IMHO.

Generally we're not a fan of arbitrarily adding more links to the page in the name of "Don't Make Me Think"; there is a lot to be said for having just the most important things as obvious links.
