I think it's a good idea. I also think it should go even further. 
Here's the full set of Subversion revision keywords:

I think "Previous" can also be read ambiguously. So, what do you think 
about this set of diff commands:

Diff With Newest Revision (HEAD)
Diff With Working Copy Revision (BASE)
Diff With Previous Working Copy Revision (PREV)


COMMITTED, I think, can be ignored for this purpose.

(and eventually Diff Selected Files, Diff With Specific Revision...)
