I tried to describe this. The task of finding out the
history of a part of an article is very time consuming
for long articles with a long history, where you have
to manually look through lots of revisions that aren't
related to the part of the article you are interested in.
I took as the example the part of the flat geography
of the city of Paris. Was this part controversial? Who
edited it? Has it changed? When and by whom?
Most edits to the article Paris are probably related to
new elections, new buildings, new institutions. Most
edits have nothing to do with the flat geography.
So could the history view of maybe 5000 edits
be quickly reduced down to 50 edits or even 5?
In this rare situation it could be beneficial, but does it really make
sense in general? Workload and complication of interface, in my opinion,
is not worth it.
