Comment (by westonruter):

 Ah, so the scope for this issue is specifically for viewing *post*
 revisions in the Customizer. So #31089 is not a duplicate, since it is
 about storing revisions of anything registered as a Customizer setting.

 If posts were registered as a Customizer settings with a custom type (e.g.
 `post`), and if we had revisions of settings in #31089, then we'd
 potentially introduce a case where there would be two copies of revisions:
 one in a post revision, and another in a Customizer revision
 (transaction). So if we did this, we'd probably want the Customizer
 setting to be a shallow reference to the full data stored in the post
 revision. For instance, there could be a Customizer setting of type
 "post_revision" whose value is the post ID for the revision to apply. Then
 when the Customizer saves, and a Customizer revision/transaction (#30937)
 is made, the only reference to the post revision is the one ID, not the
 full post object and postmeta.

 By the way, the [https://wordpress.org/plugins/customize-posts/ Customize
 Posts] plugin demonstrates how to register posts as a custom Customizer
 setting type. The previewing mechanism there could be used to apply a
 previous post revision to the preview.
