That'd be less ugly than an empty node or even one full of long stretches of striked text...

It wouldn't make the node owned by the NodeReaper, which leads to questions like unreaping and exclusion from searches, etc.

On the other hand, it is uglier than a node with a mature update that is more informative and customized to the specific circumstances.

On the gripping hand, I don't foresee such getting implemented anyway. So I'm not going try to hash out more details of the design. (I prefer the previously identified route of getting preview for updates and then edit histories).
