There should be a User Preference Option to hide reverted edits from the Watchlist and Page History. This would save a lot of "eyeball time" looking over changes whose net result is null.
Unlikely to want to hide them, though an indication might be useful. That won't be possible until there's some kind of metadata indicating that a revision was reverted, though.
Could it be hidden if the bytecount change was zero?
Set to LATER. Cannot be done now per comment 1.
In reply to comment 2: a bytecount change of 0 is only that. A lot can be done to a page without changing the byte count.
[Removing RESOLVED LATER as discussed in http://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikitech-l/2012-November/064240.html . Reopening and setting priority to "Lowest". For future reference, please use either RESOLVED WONTFIX (for issues that will not be fixed), or simply set lowest priority. Thanks a lot!]
