liferay web content does not allow a revert feature.
Most companies have deployment lifecycles.
Webcontent is authored in a authoring environment, and deployed into production.
Sometimes people want to make changes directly in production. The next import from authoring then wipes out this change.
There should be a way in liferay, where changes to a imported article is marked as overriden/changed, so that they are not wiped out by the imports.
If the admin feels the authoring import is right, then there should be a revert button to revert the article back to authoring state.

IMHO what you are describing is an exeption in a process of content authoring. I think that Liferays should not do it because there are lots of such exceptions and dealing with them is a part of every projects development part.

That's because you're "importing" instead of modifying a content. When you modify a content, liferay creates a new version. You'll be able to go back to the previous version of the content. How about setting up staging? Users shouldn't directly modify production server directly in any circumstances.
